An attractive view above of the Blue Star Cargo/passengerliner URUGUAY STAR (1948/10,723 grt).
Equipped to carry 53 First Class passengers, the URUGUAY STAR was powered by steam turbines. She was sold for demolition at Kaohsiung in 1972.

Sailed as passenger on Uruguay Star May 1953 from Buenos Aires to the UK. Had unscheduled call at Casablanca to off-load fruit from Brazil and then sailed for Plymouth where passengers were "off-loaded" as ship had orders to skip Tilbury and sail directly to Rotterdam. A good ship and wonderful voyage - lots of social activity on board!
