- WERDENFELS (DA DE; +???)
- WALLENFELS (DA SHI QIAO; +1991 ALANG)

Thanks for the comments. One of my better early attempts, such a shame that in my youth I had to conserve film so let many like this slip by :-o She is just taking on the river pilot, who can be seen at the top of the ladder.
Happy days!

Beautiful photo of yesteryear when COSCO were still using breakbulk ships.
Thanks for sharing this oldie with us.
