POST 1948

...at least I believe so

A nice colour photograph of the RANGITIKI, again probably in New Zealand waters, here used for another postcard.  This is clearly a later (post-1948) photograph, as study of the vents, etc. on the boat deck will attest.

 

Another very clear black and white photograph postcard of the ship in its post-1948 configuration.  For a long time I believed that the vents, etc. mentioned on the left were changed out during the 1957 refurbishment.  The 1950 Passenger List has clarified that this was not the case, that 1948 was probably the correct date.  Anyone being able to confirm this is invited to contact me by email

I cannot say where this photograph was taken, but I suspect Southampton.
