Glad you enjoyed it Rogerio and nice to hear from you again! The good news is I have quite a few more older Alianca/Lloyd Bras shots scanned in ready to be uploaded shortly. Happy days :-) :-)
Hope you are keeping well and the business is doing good.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for sharing this GOLD PIC with us!
really hard to find photos of Brazilian vessels (in special olds), in colour is much more hard!
thank you my friend!

I will send him a link, it's a long time since I had correspondance with him.

I'm sure I only saw this one the once Derek. I'm wondering whether Rogerio has 'spotted' it on here yet, I know he appreciates the older Brazilians ;-)

Didn't remember this one at all John.
Unless of course the old sponge is on the way out!
Great shot by the way.
