Here’s another picture taken on the ferry. I really like the unidentified ship in the background. We’re not sure what ship that is… perhaps an army or navy transport already heading out to the South Pacific?
The benches in the picture clued pap in on where exactly these pictures were taken (on a ferry rather than ship). I used them, some recurring boat architecture and, to an extent, series numbers on the back of the pictures, to try and identify a series.
