Port Chalmers
Port Chalmers in the late 60's. Haparangi in the foreground with Port Chalmers across from her. Not sure which is the other Federal job but possibly Huntingdon, either Karetu or Karepo ahead of her and Hotunui at the top right.

Great picture which certainly makes me wish we could turn back the clock. Derek

Yes the funnels look to be sparkling in the sunshine - a time when there was pride in the MN and the company you worked for! Thanks for posting a great pic

What a cracking photo.
Other Federal job is an 'H' boat, and I'm sure the resident sleuths will have it narrowed down soon!

I really like this. The era of the general cargo ship. A truly wonderful and rewarding time to be at sea.

Would date photo about November 1968. Beach Street shed completed by Christmas '68 and cranes on wharf erected by May '69.
