SS Australis Brochure and Photo

Page Two


A magnificent shot of SS Australis on the back cover

Page 2 of the official Chandris 1967 SS Australis brochure contains scans of pages 6 to 9, as well as part of pages 11 and 13. I have also included an image of a Chandris souvenir salt and pepper set. You will note I have not included any comments as I feel that each picture tells it’s own story! Enjoy!
