  2. Sagafjord

  3. Gripsholm


    Formerly Sagafjord, alongside the Tilbury Landing Stage.
  4. Gripsholm


    Gripsholm in name but Sagafjord in reality. The brief period after Cunard had disposed of the ship when she sailed for Transocean and prior to becoming Saga Rose. A most unfortunate livery, which would not have suited any ship.
  5. Europa


    The beautiful former Kungsholm as the Hapag flagship Europa. Whilst I did not dislike this livery she certainly looked better in the sober NDL colours.
  6. Vistafjord


    Long ago, when she was virtually still a new ship. Departing from Tilbury.
  7. Gripsholm


    Gripsholm was, possibly, even more beautiful than Kungsholm.....??
  8. Gripsholm


    Gripsholm on her final visit to London, she was on a long cruise from New York but the days of Swedish American Line were soon to end, sadly.
  9. Sagafjord


    Alongside the Tilbury Landing Stage during one of her long Northern Europe cruises from New York.

  11. Tilbury Docks 1962

    Tilbury Docks 1962

    The P&O Liners Strathmore and Iberia are seen tied up in Tilbury Docks in 1962. The view from the new lock gives an indication of the massive expanse of water available to shipping and which enabled the further expansion to take place.

    Michelangelo alongside the Tilbury Landing Stage during her one and only cruise to northern Europe.

    Michelangelo alongside the Tilbury Landing Stage on 2 August 1974.
