    Προεπιλογή Hermes & Pegasus [Princess Joan & Princess Elizabeth]

    Μια μικρή διακοπή για λίγο.
    Μια φωτογραφία από το περίφημο βιβλίο της Γεωγραφίας της Γ' και της Δ' τάξης Δημοτικού του 1975 με ένα ιστορικό πλοίο της Ηπειρωτικής.
    Έχω την εντύπωση ότι το πλοίο αυτό είναι το δεύτερο "Ερμής" της Ηπειρωτικής. Αυτό, όμως, με κάθε επιφύλαξη.

    Αφιερωμένη εξαιρετικά στον καλό φίλο Α.Μώλο.
    Οι αναζητήσεις σε παλιά βιβλία της Γεωγραφίας συνεχίζονται .....

    Princess Elizabeth (later Pegasus) was built in Glasgow in 1930 and served the Seattle-Victoria-Vancouver triangle until 1959. Sold to Epirotiki in 1960 she became Pegasus. Her interior was palatial.

    Yet, like most CP Lines ships Princess Elizabeth (later Pegasus) had a very unusual, old-style cut that was not very pleasing

    And the regal Princess Joan was to travel the Mediterranean as the Hermes. Photographs from a 1959 book Pacific Coastal Liners by Gordon Newell and John Williamson (Bonanza Books, New York, 1959).

    Προεπιλογή Hermes & Pegasus [Princess Joan & Princess Elizabeth]

    These two important Epirotiki ships the Princess Joan and Princess Elizabeth in common with their earlier predecessors of Typaldos and her Chandris contemporary Princess Helene, formed an attractive pair of mini liners which operated a very successful service from Venice to Greece, Cyprus and Israel and vice versa which was marketed as the Four Seas voyage.

    They also undertook some longer cruises both under charter and for Epirotiki Lines proper and ventured outside the Mediterranean as far as the Canaries and further.

    Am attaching a selection of pages from their early brochures 1962/1966 and two official company postcards. They were well fitted out and had some very nice classic interiors. The Hermes was a regular visitor to Gibraltar during the late 1960's. Henry.

    Very elegant interiors... especially the main hall is something that I would never imagine to see in such small ships!

    We have seen Henry's great brochures of Pegasus and Hermes. Here is now a nice ad of the same... It appears (along with other Epirotiki ships) in a playbill of the 1967-68 season of the Greek National Opera (Ethniki Lyriki Skini)

    Προεπιλογή Pegasus

    Nicholas, what a great photo of this beautiful mini liner. I have a particularly soft spot for these lovely twins Pegasus and Hermes. The latter called several times at Gib when doing Western Med and Canary Island cruises in the 60's and 70's when I was very young and I can still remember her berthed in our port. A pity I did not take any photos then!

    Many thanks for this and best regards
    Henry.
