Oronsay sits at night at the former overseas terminal 13 Pyrmont Sydney in 1971. Behind it the Sydney Casino was built.

Stunning image! Sydney is being transformed from a harbour into a pretty pond but these images remind us of a more interesting and evocative time. Thanks Curl Curl for posting this great image!

Curl Curl, Are you sure this was taken in 1971? I was on her for all of 1971 and we were berthed at Circular Quay for the only time we were in Sydney.

Dave, I'm sorry I can't remember him. I joined in December 1970 and did the world cruise that year and did the world cruise in December the following year and left in April 1972. We were undoubtedly on board together but you don't get to know everyone.
