PORT CHALMERS

Large Port Line reefer at Glasgow on an extremely foul February 1976 day hence the poor quality. Sleet does not enhance a photo!
She was built by Alexander Stephen at Linthouse in 1968 their penultimate ship, last being her sister PORT CAROLINE. They were the largest reefers in the world at one time.
PORT CHALMERS became MANAAR when transferred over to Brocklebank Line in 1982 and in 1983 was sold becoming GOLDEN GLORY being scrapped as that at Shanghai in 1985.
