Anyone know anything about this ship?
appears to be named Morelli, Flag: Italy
I found this unmounted slide film at the bottom of a box which was about to be thrown out in the trash. Slipped out from between flaps, very dirty, scratched up. I did a lot to try to restore it. Not perfect, but saved and I don't see a ship of this name in the directory here in shipspotting. Arriving Boston Harbor off South Boston, Massachusetts, unknown date, possible circa 1960s.
Scan is from a Kodachrome film frame. photo by my dad, Earle G. Boyd

MORELLI, together with sisterships PALIZZI and IROLLI, was owned by Achille Lauro of Naples who sold them en bloc in 1963 to Ignacio Messina & Co. Oddly IROLLI, earmarked to be given the name ANDREAEMME, was not immediately renamed, in 1964 becoming CARLO ARCIDIACONO.
