Help with Photos of William Gustav

Post by sqnldr » 19 Apr 2021 19:35

Hi,

Hoping someone can help with some photos identification. I am 99% sure this is the William Gustav but where is it docked in the photo? Any ideas? There is a lovely 4 funnel ship behind too. Any ideas?

Any help at all appreciated as always!

David,

These are the cupolas of the St.Pauli Landungsbrücken in Hamburg.

By the way,

Just noticed that you misspelled the name.

It's Wilhelm Gustloff
