The former Italia liner Augustus did not have long at her Manila berth after I saw her. How lucky I was to have managed to have seen her and spend some time aboard her. It is a great sadness that after so many years in a static role she could not be spared from the scrap yards.

Yes, the sole survivor of the once magnificent Italian Line. Never drastically altered externally. Wouldn't you have thought she could have found some employment at Genoa or Naples? A floating hotel off Capri or Ischia? {{{sigh}}}
