  1. London Docks 1968

    I might be wrong, almost 50 years ago, I believe it was in London. A lot of engine mouvements to get to the dock. Also, I remember, that it was required by the galley staff to leave an area free on the stove for the various water kettles of the longshore men, for their tea. Being a young...

  7. Mauretania

    The second Mauretania is seen steaming on the River Thames, as she approaches the King George V Drydock in London on the eve of the Second World War. She would get a new coat of wartime gray, and she took on an old World War I era gun on her stern. She would next head for New York to await her...

  13. Viking Star

    The brand new Viking Line cruise ship, Viking Star on her 'maiden Call' at Greenwich, London. She was on her way to Bergen for her naming ceremony. While there has been a lot of hype regarding the ship I have to admit that, while it was a lovely day for taking photographs, she let me totally...

  15. Europa at Greenwich on 21 June 2008

    The most highly-rated cruise ship in the world, Europa. I took this photo just before I went on board for lunch. Yes, it was all very nice but I still preferred the 1953-built Europa ex Kungsholm. The photo was taken on mid-summers day but it looked and felt like winter!
  16. Royal Docks, London

    Flintshire entering the locks for the Royal Docks, London. I'm sure there will be someone wearing a bowler hat on the quay checking that we do it right! Radnorshire can be seen alongside inside the dock. The berth that she is on, I believe now is at the end of the City Airport runway.
