1st February 1953 Victoria


This picture, provided by Peter Ford, was taken of Victoria in the Southampton scrapyard on Sunday 1st February 1953, just over a week after her arrival under her own steam from Weymouth.

As you can see the breakers haven’t wasted any time in starting her demolition and she is already without her funnel, bridge and handrails. A sad sight to see.
