Always nice to see colour photos of our ships from this era. Note the 'missing' white line between the black and red parts of the hull. Some ships had it, others not, seemed almost to be at the whim of the Master (or perhaps the chief painter!).

Lovely picture of the well-covered T.S.BRIGHTON, which is shown here on an east side lay up berth location and is also shown on many other sections of this site plotting her history etc .

The white line between antifouling paint ( Red ) and topsides of hull ( Black ) is normally called a boot top line, and it always makes a cleaner more aesthetic look to finishing a vessels main painted areas on the hull, however it can be a painstaking exercise particularly on ships etc .

What a great photo of Brighton and with the sheerlegs in the background, where can I get a copy?
