Thanks for the compliment and the info, Peter :-)
I would have guessed that she might be the oldest, but I didn't know for sure.
Now I do...
Hope she's got another century ahead of her.

Kind regards

Hi Klaus Hubert!
As my shipspotter's day regarding photography wasn't that successful today, I was digging through the "archives" and turned up with these two photos which got lost in the crash of December 2007.
And as I'm always fascinated with her age, too, I decided to resubmit them.
Thanks for your nice comment! :-)

Kind regards

Built in 1901 and still in service. Fantastic.
Interesting picture. Thank you for sharing.

Klaus Hubert
