Description:
Taken by my uncle, the only available information I got is that ship is a C3 type vessel sailing under Saguenay colors.
This is the Norwegian C1-A vessel SUNHILL which belonged to Lundegaard & Sønner,Farsund,Norway between 1955 and 1967.She was originally built 1942 in Beaumont,Tx.as CAPE PORPOISE, becoming Norwegian BOW HILL in 1946,belonging to the Odfjell-company of Bergen,who sold it to Lundegaard in 1955. She became Greek SPETSAI in 1967,ending her days at Kaohsiung-breakers in 3/1969.
Saguenay Terminals had a lot of Norwegian vessels on charter in the 50's and the 60's.
