Nice pic Joe.
She looks bigger than she actually, tiny for a container ship. The Registration of St Johns is Antigua, not Canada.

MS Empress of England, an ocean liner, was built in 1956-1957 by Vickers-Armstrongs, Newcastle, the United Kingdom for the Canadian Pacific Steamships. The ship was launched in 1956 and she undertook her maiden voyage in 1957. She was a near identical sister ship to Empress of Britain. The Empress of England was intended for sailing between Liverpool and Montreal. The ship was launched by Lady Eden, the wife of the Prime

Minister Anthony Eden on 9 May 1956. Empress of England's maiden voyage began on 18 April 1957. The ship sailed from Liverpool bound for Montreal, Quebec. Trans-Atlantic crossings continued until starting her last regularly scheduled crossing which began on 14 November 1969. The ship accomplished some cruises before she was sold in March 1970. :wink: :D

HMS Albion was commissioned on 26/05/1954. She is pictured arriving at Prince’s Landing Stage on a visit to the port. She was open to the public. In 1973 she was sold for conversion into a heavy lift vessel for the North Sea oil exploration. However, the plans didn’t materialise and she was broken up in Faslane. :( :wink:

It’s called “bunkering “ Joe. Some that feed the big cruise ships are not so small and can take all day to fill them up. Ken

Joe.

Thanks for your many very interesting and nostalgic photos on this thread.

I must admit I have never followed it closely but have just read through it.

My interest was really fuelled by your three photos of HMS Conway (16 Jan. March 4 and April 5) which I never realised had berthed in Liverpool.

My very first job was as a galley boy on that Blue Funnel ship in 1950. I drew my uniform from the Alfred Holt office in India Buildings and my weeks wage was 12s 6d. Being six feet tall I had many problems with the headroom being only 5ft 8ins inside the ship. Seems sailors were quite small when it was built.
