THE SAME SHIP - A DIFFERENT LOOK
Some passenger ships look just like cats: they have seven lifes. One such example is the STOCKHOLM of 1948, still sailing as the ATHENA in Classic International Cruises livery. I first photographed her in Lisbon in the mid seventies when she used to cruise from Goteborg under charter to Stena Line as the VOLKERFEUNDSCHAFT. Here she is underway in the river Tagus in 1985 and again in Lisbon twenty years later as the rebuilt ATHENA.
