ORCADES at Belfast

Interesting old shot of her at Belfast where she went to have air conditioning installed I believe.

I never feel anything but awe when looking at this liner, especially this view at H&W. This slip is such an ideal "stage" to see the finished product. I've seen some amazing photos of liners here.

correct about going there to be airconditioned
arrived in BELFAST 29 DEC 1958 and left 6 MARCH 1959

I know the exact dates from my discharge book as I was the 4th engineer at the time

My fathers first ship in 1952 he and I are are always pleased to see pictures of the this fine ship.

There is a great 32 minute video of the Orcades in full colour on Youtube, it is well worth watching.
