SINKIANG Steel Motor Vessel ca 1950s
This photo was one of several taken by my father, Fred O'Dee (1923-2016). The photo was probably taken in the Trobriand Islands ca 1950 when he was a passenger on the Sinkiang. At the time she was owned by China Navigation Co. Ltd, London and registered in London. The ship was transporting passengers and cargo between Australia and PNG and several islands in the region. Later the Sinkiang was renamed 1966 TONG JIT then GAMSOLO and then in 1969 KADINA.
