Pamir and Passat
'Pamir' and 'Passat' moored up at the northern quay of Penarth Dock in late 1949 or early 1950. Left distant is the Missions to Seamen and an onlooker is huddled inside his trench coat and trilby wondering no doubt about the sight before his eyes which represented the end of the era for these fine merchant sailing ships. The lower image and enlargement have been colourised. [158] [286]
