Interesting pic nevertheless. Been viewing and editing some of my old negatives. You dont realise how damaged by time they have become until you scan them with new technology! Something to do with the chemicals breaking down over 30+ years I suppose?
Thanks for the comment. You are quite right re breaking down of images after so many years, although the film used with these particular pics during 1968 was ORWO ?, seemed grainy anyway. The colour slides have faired much better generally, although the AGFA ones haven't lasted the distance so well. Thought it was about time to share some of the pics I have in my collection especially after visiting this site for the first time this week. Am still learning to navigate around it. Best wishes from Wayne Morris.
Paul, They were there pending disposal. Caronia had to wait longer for a new owner. Fairland ex Carinthia already disposed of to Sitmar and funnel repainted. Sylvania, yet to be re-named at that time. Not during the seamans strike which was in 1966. (You don't know any sources of photos during the strike do you?).
A little later in 1969, I worked for Keller Bryant (agents for Sitmar Line) and was able to go on board and take photos on board the then Fairland & Fairwind. Regards Wayne Morris.
if any one wants any pictures of the seaman strike of 1966 - please send me a message direct - i have most on file including a list of all the ships in port - and a 17 page report as to why the strike happened - i cannot seem to send a private message to anyone as its switched off ?
