A true nostalgic picture showing Indian Deck Crew working under a Serang dressed smartly as they always were with lifeboat stations clearly marked. Superb shot onboard a ship never to be seen again. This is what Ships Nostalgia is all about. David

I was just about to say something like that myself, but found that Pompeyfan beat me to it. It vividly answers the question "What was it like out there?".

Was this taken alongside or at anchor somewhere? There's a strange absence of swell, as well as passengers, but the reflected horizon gives the pleasant illusion of being at sea.

I would say very early in the morning before the passengers were up and about. The deck crew were usually up bright and early. I would say she was on a line voyage, not a cruise and in the southern hemisphere judging by the brightness of the sky. This also looks like her First Class section. They had the biggest part of the ship carrying 770 First Class Passengers and 390 Tourist. David

You are right Kiwi, there is a European tradesman there on closer inspection. And she is certainly in the southern hemisphere. David
