Soviet cruise ship 'Shota Rustaveli' in 1969


The ship was completed the previous year, scrapped in 2003 -- info

Here it was seen at the Captain Cook Wharf in Auckland, looking north along Commerce Street, with the Union Steam Ship Company building at right and a turning Auckland Regional Authority trolleybus.   Nearest the camera is a late 1960s Vauxhall Viva.
