OH what a picture from what was it taken, and when?

It's not King Orry. It's earlier either the Manx Maid II or the Ben my Chree V the first two side loading car ferries the Steam Packet owned.

Just checked it's the Ben my Chree V

These 'short-sea' voyages can be very taxing indeed for crew and passenger alike, but I suppose that's what the vessels were designed for.

This is not the King Orry but the ben my Chree. The last King Orry was a passenger Ship and not a car ferry

Just like to amend my last comment. The last king Orry was in fact a car ferry but previous to the Manx Maid & Ben it was a passenfer Ship. It was the first of a fleet of six with similar designs, the last of which was the Manxman.
Does anyone have an update on her fate(Manxman)

She languished at Sunderland for long enough and I think is possibly away to breakers.
