We could not resist showing this great photograph taken by
D. Shackleton and sent into the Leith Shipyards website by L. Pollard.
Same photographer took the almost identical shot of her
sister ship the SA JOHN ROSS which had been built at a local South African
shipyard and was launched a bit after the Leith built SA WOLRAAD WOLTEMADE which just looked right.

|SA JOHN ROSS Z-TUG|
They show the two mighty ships arriving at
Town for the first time ready to go about there work.
Don’t know about you but I know which ship looks the better and leave you to choose your own preferred picture.
