SS Chusan
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1960


In the 50s, the Chusan also used to ply between Colombo and Southampton via the Suez Canal, carrying tea planters like my (ex-Hong Kong) father and their families on their 3-yearly leave. I still have a souvenir sailor doll from the Chusan, but was too young to savour its luxuries. Nice to see its picture though.
