Places we visited…

Lourenco Marques

A regular call for Bank Line was the Mozambique port of Lourenco Marques ( now Moputo). The passenger service carried on by the Isipingo and Inchanga made stop there southbound, discharging gunnies and spices and loading produce and ingots.

The port today

A trip ashore here was always welcome – strong local and Portugese beer served with beans or snacks, well laid out streets, and an air of order and modern living. The Portugese stevedores worked alongside their local charges without distinction.
