Las imagenes siguientes son propiedad del Cap. Juan Carlos Carrion, y comprenden una serie de unos 300 buques que tocaban puertos Sud Africanos, desde los comienzos del vapor hasta luego de la 1ª Guerra Mundial. Comprenden una magnifica coleccion de imagenes de buques que seguramente serviran para muchos historiadores de ese tiempo y zona. La foto tiene un link a una imagen mas grande, de 750 x 575 pixeles.

 Merchant Ships in South Africa - The following ship photos collection belongs to Capt Juan Carlos Carrion in Argentina, who allowed their publication in Histarmar. They represent about 300 images of steamships that plied South African waters, up to the 1st World War. They cannot be used for commercial purposes, only for non profit educational uses. Each photo has a link to a larger resolution of 750 x 575 pixels. I do not have it larger than this, as the original photos are quite blurry.
