The Liberty Ship is (right) AJAX (ex- Senator, ex- Sambay, ex- Anton M. Holter) built by Oregon Shipbuilding Portland in 1943. She was finally owned by Belvientos Compania Naviera S.A.and operated by Rethymnis & Kulukundis Ltd.under Greek Flag and Registry.

Second right is THEONYMPHOS TINOU (ex- Alexandros, ex- Anna L. Condylis, ex- Kerkyra, ex- William Grayson) built by Bethlehem-Fairfield at Baltimore in 1942. Her final owner was Preveza Shipping Co. and she was operated by Tsakalotos Navigation Co. under Lebanese Flag and Registry.

The T2 Tanker is LAKE GEORGE (ex- Demetrios A. , ex- Atlantic Capetown, ex- Kongsholm, ex- Atlantic Africa, ex- Marin Hills) built by Marinship Sausalito, California in 1945. Last owned and operated by Artemisian SS Co. S.A. under Liberian Flag and Registry. Arrived Kaohsiung and laid up on 01/06/68. Sold to Mitsui Co. Ltd. of London for scrap on 05/16/68. Chien Tai Iron Works Co.Ltd. was nominee for scrapping. Vessel was completely scrapped as of 02/08/69.
On the C1, I still try to figure out the name. Not the easiest task. Maybe with a better schan.

But finally, a sad end for fine ships.

Thanks Mike.

I have a number of slides in red mounts, including Suffolk at Kaohsiung, will credit all these to Barry.

This photo was taken by a friend of mine, Barry Parsons in Oct 1968.
He was crew member of the Suffolk and was on her scrapyard voyage.Just out of picture to the left was SSA's Romanic.

Very interesting but sad photo, so many old pearls waiting for its death.
