Port Chalmers

A view of the container terminal at Port Chalmers and Otago harbour. Berthed at the terminal is the largest vessel to ever be on the New Zealand ship register the NEW ZEALAND PACIFIC. The vessel was the flag ship for the New Zealand Shipping Corporation from 1978-89.

Shouldn't be too hard to date. The second container crane is under construction.

Is this photo taken from near the Shackleton memorial? Think that's Chicks on the right hand side - lots of buildings seem to have disappeared.

Yes, a massive reclamation job took place to build the Container Terminal.There used to be wharves and a dry-dock where the current Terminal is. For the record, Chicks Hotel is just outside the main gate and to the right (not visible in the photo) The town hasnt changed much at all over the years.
