MARABANK

A fine view of a loaded Marabank, probably in the 1950’s. Bank Line had 12 Liberty’s, mostly with European crews, i.e. Liverpool or London men. They were great ships to sail on, comfortable, practical, and with a simple layout both on the bridge and in the engine room with its chunky 3 cylinder steam engine. Remembered fondly by many who sailed on them. ( See the article about a sistership voyage on the Maplebank in the Books section of this site)
