Thanks alot for the interesting hint - was worth to look. My favourite here is "containerships built before 1971", lot of interesting stuff, at least for me :-)

Hi Cornelia,

Glad you like her, there are several old ones like her on the site, for General Cargo have a look at Troyburg IMO 5369499, she is a good example of the ships of her period. Put the IMO in the advance search and you will see her.

Thanks alot for posting such, this is absolutely amazing to see for me, starting with the hobby at the beginning of the 90ies, photos like this have educational value for me, about ships of the past :-)
