The original Kodak Brownie 127 image presents quite a difference from the Leica Elmarit with which the September 2013 photographs were taken.
However, in the 1970s your web master was still at school, didn't know much about cameras, and had limited resources.
Fortunately things changed shortly after when access to a grandfather's Praktica SLR was possible on an occasional basis and a photographic awakening began!
However, it was to be some years before a camera was pointed at ships on a regular basis as railways appeared more interesting from the mid 1970s to the beginning of the 1990s.
Little was it realised 40 years ago that photography would have evolved from paper, film and chemicals into the digital medium is today.
These photographs are a reminder not only of the consistency of time when it comes to the lines of a beautiful timeless classic ship, but also the changes in photography.
