As an 18yr old, in 1950 I was employed as a Secretary by Henry Wills & Co. in Albany Western Australia (a shipping company).



During that year the "JASON" arrived in Albany on it's maiden voyage, and I took quite a few photos of it with my little Brownie camera as it sailed into Albany Harbour.

I will attach a copy of one of these photos, which a friend coloured for me.  The original photos were of course in black and white.

Many thanks to Delys, for sending us these amazing image.
