Very sad sight. As Fairsky she was a pioneer in cruising out of Sydney. Fond memories for me.

Tony, this is a rare find! I have never seen shot of her after her fire.

Suggestion: could you please title the shot as PHILIPPINE TOURIST as per the conventions of this website?

She caught fire on 3/11/'79 and arrived at Hong Kong for breaking on 27/5/'80, so this shot would have been taken in late 1979/early 1980.

thanks again for posting this one!
