    Rex

    Here is a stern view of Italy’s Rex, also taken in Genoa, with the ship dressed overall. This ship IMO was one of the few that didn’t look as good photographed from the stern.

    The NGI passenger vessel to the right is possibly the Citta di Genova. The small cargo vessel to her left looks to have a Nippon Yusen Kaisha funnel. But without colour this could well be incorrect. Any information about the various ships and likely date of this photo would be appreciated.

    Another shot of that busy day in Genoa harbour in 1977. I wish that I'd taken other photos of this most interesting ship; built as the Panama for Panama Line and later sailed as President Hoover on American President Line's trans-Pacific service.

    So many ships in Genoa harbour on this day in 1977. Enrico C and Regina Prima (out of shot) Odessa, Angelina Lauro and Amerikanis (also out of shot). I was on Vistafjord and she took the berth that had just been vacated by Irpinia.
