CANBERRA, S. JORGE, MARTIM MONIZ...


P&O liner and cruise ship CANBERRA photographed in Lisbon on 1993-04-16 at her usual berth in Alcântara. On that day I photographed a lot of shipping on the river Tagus, namely the CANBERRA and the then new German-built sisters S. JORGE and MARTIM MONIZ, two 1000 pax ferries designed for a route from Cais do Sodré to Barreiro that never materialized, the ships being operated mainly at peak hours under charter to the Portuguese Railways and later Soflusa. CANBERRA was gone to Pakistan breakers in October 1997, but the Portuguese twins are still in service in the fleet of Transtejo, in Lisbon.
