Towing SS Noranda Park, September 1945
Towing SS Noranda Park, September 1945

Sailors lounge on the SS Stanley Park's deck while their ship tows another Canadian merchant ship, the SS Noranda Park.

In September 1945, the Stanley Park towed the Noranda Park from Pointe-Noire, in the Congo, to Lagos, Nigeria. Two towing lines can just be seen running between the ships. The Stanley Park's 4-inch gun, no longer necessary in peacetime, is now a rack for drying clothing.
