AUGUSTUS leaving Lisbon

The beautiful Italian Line motor ship AUGUSTUS leaving the Alcântara passenger ship terminal in November 1975 and sailing under the Tagus bridge bound for Brazil and the river Plate on one of her final voyages for Italia.
On her mast on the signals yard she  has the company houseflag and the Portuguese flag, the Italian national flag is on the peak of the gaff, the call sign (I-C-B-B in case of AUGUSTUS) is on the lower signal's yard while the Pilot's flag is hoisted forward of the mast on the signal's stay.
On the stern of AUGUSTUS, on the first photo the Portuguese cargo liner BERNARDINO CORRÊA can be seen at distance. For other AUGUSTUS photos click here...
