I have just write my remember of the tragedy in front of the Diga foranea at Genoa in 1970 was a very very sadly fact...

in the distance in front of the bow one can see the 'HEMBRUG' railway swing bridge, now removed and replaced by a tunnel.
great nostalgic shot of amsterdam port

... and it almost took half a century to find that out!
Well, as they say, haste makes waste...:-)

Jens, I like off-topic.
It looks like it was a special day in more ways than one then. :)

Admittedly I'm a member of the Shoebox- and Human Livestock carrier fraction on this site, but these vintage tankers looked really much more appealing than today's tankers... A beautiful photo, David.

Totally off-topic but I like such coincidences: You joined the London Tradition on my first birthday...:-)

TY David, the white apron and superstructure sets it off as well mate

Hi Samson46,
I hope you enjoy this one then, if she was any lighter she'd probably have been floating above the water. Cheers, David.

David: In my opinion, tankers and bulk carriers are both much more photogenic when they are unladen

Hi Gordy, Jadran,
I never thought ships looked at their best when not fully laden. I sailed on one of the Valour's sisters too, the London Tradition. She was a bit newer and they spent more money on the furnishings. She is posted here too and looks very nice:

Top stuff David, I was lucky to be on two tankers interesting life, ty mate
