Stowing frozen carcasses on the Port Caroline


Detail showing stowing carcasses

The bad old days: stowing frozen carcasses in one of the Port Caroline’s refrigerated holds. Even in such a gleaming new ship, it was cold, hard work and could be dangerous as well.

The Port Caroline was constructed in 1968; this image is from 1971.
