SS Taroona unloading - Princes Pier Port Melbourne 1957.
Taken with a Brownie box camera. Shown in the picture is the way motor cars were loaded and unloaded. Taroona generally made two return trips to Tasmania each week. Usual ports of call there were Beauty Point in the Tamar River near Launceston, and Burnie. Usually, Taroona berthed at Princes Pier but occasionally used Station Pier and sometimes, even 17 North Wharf in the Yarra River. Was replaced with the ship MV Princess of Tasmania in 1969 which had drive on - drive off facilities
