Ships and Harbours
Passenger ship Francesco Morosini
Nice black and white picture of the Italian cruise ship Francesco Morosini (year 1950 is just a wild guess). She was built in 1928/29, was 84 metres long and measured 2423 tons.
I've not been able to find much information on her except that she was involved in a collision in 1931 with the Karadjordje in the Pašman Channel near Babac island.
Whatever her history, I think she is a great looking ship. I particularly like her straight bow.
