As I said earlier today, great pic but, er, that's the
Chartres, John! Senlac left for the final time in 1987. Chartres was running alongside Versailles by this time.

That's one of my favourite spots for taking a photo. The angle's just right; looking upriver. Night and a high tide only make it better.

Thank you for the correction Andy, just testing to see you are paying attention !.. the ships all look the same to me at night !
I think the picture was more likely to have been taken in the late 1980's ..I remember holding the camera on the top of a concrete fence post to keep it steady for the 2 second exposure..

Do you know when the " Tango " crane arrive on the East Quay ?
