Above the waterline, this looks amazingly like Peking. Identify it?
These fotos come from Colin Syndercombe, who previously sent these fotos, and these, among others. As to the sailing vessel, it’s from 1921, 385′ loa (Peking is 1911 and 377′), and still sails. Know it? It called in Cape Town earlier this month, and is now northbound.

Thanks much to Colin for these fotos.
