What a perfect day on the shores of the Kiel Canal this must have been ...

Hello Malcolm,
you´re right,the vessel in the centre is "Efploia", the left one is "Angarsk".

incidentally, I believe that the vessel in the centre of the photograph is EFPLOIA; the Soviet on the left may be KOLPINO; thanks again for the interesting photograph

Michael, a most nostalgic view of the Canal - thankyou -
Grzegorz, I think that you will find that SZYMANOWSKI was built for carrying general cargo, rather than bulks, and had 'tweendecks for that purpose. With best regards to you both
