"Ferry to Hong Kong"


1973-1801-033
"Tung Shan"
Photographed in Macau's Porto Interior, - the old inner harbour -, in 1973

Classic steam ferry in the Hong Kong - Macau service.
Shortly after I took these pictures, the "Tung Shan" was scrapped in Hong Kong in 1974, - and another unique maritime antique was lost forever to the fast hydrofoils that had started to take over on the Hong Kong - Macau run.
When sailing back to Hong Kong on the "Tung Shan", I asked if I could visit the engine room to see an old steam propulsion plant in action, but unfortunately my request was denied, - hence no pictures of the engine room, - unfortunately!

Built in Hong Kong in 1924, as "Sai On", - Tons: 1950, - LPP: 68,8 m., - Beam: 12,8 m., - Propulsion:  2 steam turbines, - Speed: 13 knots
Renamed 1943 to "Seian Maru", - in 1945 to original name "Sai On, - in 1950 to "Takshing" and in 1968 to "Tung Shan".  Scrapped in January 1974.
