Description:
Converted slide taken by the late Aubrey Carey, now in my collection. Queen of Bermuda would regularly leave No 1 Dock in Hamilton on Wednesday afternoon, needing to use its anchor to help pull away from the wharf, and sometimes a tug as well. The tug id the BERMUDIAN, built in 1915 as a patrol boat for the Royal Navy and named Arctic Whale, and bought by Furness Bermuda Line in 1920 for service as a tender to carry passengers from arriving ships to St George's. Sold to Bermuda Government in 1947 and converted into a tender. The small ferry on the left is the Georgia, which was built for the US Navy in WW2 and used by them in Bermuda. Bought by the Bermuda Government, it operated the short route from Hamilton across the Harbour to Paget, and I travelled on it many times as a child. Replaced in the 1960s by new ferries.

This picture was taken in the late 1950s.

Deleting it ? oh boy,,,to what this site came !!!
If it would be here 500 times already like those always look like total different big boxers one could follow that line,,but this one ?

Unbelievable this should be considered for deletion. Especially when there are so many photographs of ships on the site, which are duplicated multiple times. Often by the same photographers. As an example look for pictures of the BUCENTAUR. This is repeated many times with the same photographers posting multiple shots. If there is going to be site standards, then make it apply to everybody. I am not singling out anybody in particular, rather I am using this ship as an example.

historic photo - worth keeping for the tender alone...

No, no, please do not delete this photo. It is way too good to be deleted!!!!!!

In the other picture the mast is cut off as well. But I would regret it very, very much as for that reason this very historical and very rare colour views are to be deleted. What about the "other photo's to be retained on the website" section?
