  5. Unknown ship

    Unknown ship

    Snapshot of unknown ship at Lyttelton, c. late 1940's? Looks like a Canadian 'Park', possibly Union SSCo 'Waikawa'-type? None of the USSCo photos I've got have 2 heavy-lift derricks, nor the funnel cap. Funnel looks to be in the process of repainting, and name on stern might end in a 'c'. 'Waihemo'
