    New Zealand Line's Taupo is seen in London's Royal Albert Dock in 1971. Built 1966 she was 10,983 gr tons. A very handsome ship by all measures I suppose it could be said that all previous freighter designs led up to these ultimate beauties before the world changed.

    Federal Lines 'Taupo'.swinging in Victoria Dock, Melbourne, before sailing down theYarra and away. Almost the end of the era, just look at the empty berths! I remember the Dock being full woth 24 ships and many more waiting in the bay for a vacant berth.
