Abidjan on the Ivory Coast was one of the more interesting ports visited by Bank Line ships when discharging on the West African coast. The very French atmosphere, nicely laid out boulevards etc gave it a continental feel – a total change from the cities up and down the coast. It was a hint of charm and sophistication that made shore trips there memorable.
The old ‘war horse’ IRISBANK visited twice in one 2 year voyage, both times to discharge gunnies from India for the produce exports.
