Do I see a Duke (Of Lancaster) in the right of the photo near a circular building!?

Hi Finnpartner, whether it's the Duke of Lancaster I can't really tell, but I read on Wikipeda that she did indeed cruise to Oslo. http://www.hhvferry.com/dukelancints.html (The circular building was a garage for imported cars). The ship top middle is the Royal Yacht, and above her lies the Royal Yacht Club's premises. Just out of the picture, upper left, lies the Fram and Kon-Tiki museums, and our National Maritime Museum. All on the Bygdøy Peninsula, a place of museums plus castles and semi-castles for royals, big country ambassadors, and the filthy rich.
The hatches on the Wilhelmsen liners looks narrow to me when looked at from above, not as I remember them from onboard. Obviously there's a set of buses just arrived, as seen on the right. If arrived by sea, it's not Scania, must be Leyland or Mercedes. Regards, Stein.
