Identify a ship's picture at Gem Pier at Williamstown?
May 27, 2011
I think it was taken by George Force, or one of his family, who had a passion for photographing ships at Williamstown (Vic).
I suspect it was possibly in the 1940’s, but could be wrong.
He , or family member, also had a passion for collecting cuttings on submarines, so this ship might be associated with that??
I do have about 20 others of his photos, all I suspect taken at Williamstown, some older though.
His scrap book is dated in the first world war
In your photo it rather looks to me like Gem Pier at Williamstown.
The old Corvette HMAS Castlemaine is currently berthed there.
Here is a brief history of the old British Destroyer H26.
