Shaw Savill's SOUTHERN CROSS
Innovative all aft passenger liner completed for Shaw Savill at Belfast by Harland and Wolff in 1955 taken in Southampton Water in July 1963 by the late Donald Robertson whose photo was passed on to me.
In 1972 she was sold and renamed CALYPSO then later AZURE SEAS and OCEAN BREEZE and only went to breakers in 2003.
A near sister, NORTHERN STAR was built on Tyneside in 1962 but did not enjoy such a long life, going to breakers in 1975.
