Places we visited…

Hong Kong

Hong Kong harbour saw many Bank Line ships come and go, occasionally just for a crew change. The stunning location was hard to beat, and ashore in the early days everything that jack tar could ever need was available with many bars and haunts offering a variety of food and drink. A couple of pics below capture the 1950’s scene – star ferry terminal and a busy street.

The book, ” Merchant Navy Apprentice 1951 – 1955″ is about life circling the world in the 1950’s.
