    Greetings: I wonder if anyone here remembers, or is able to look up, the callsign of NZ-registered MV Maranui for me. She was launched in 1953 and sank in 1968. She had the same owners (Northern Steam Ship Company) and same name for her entire career...
  3. Wellington, New Zealand

    Wellington, New Zealand

    A view dating from about the mid to late 1960's. I think two of the vessels are Oriana (on the seaward side of the harbour) and Maori (amongst those on the landward side.) One of the cargo ships looks to be a member of the New Zealand SS Co. but the others I am unable to identify
