Harrison line trips and pictures from 1973 - 1985 of Richard Hunt.
With major contributions from Harrison ship mates.
Trip 5: MV Adventurer
Whilst I was at school, I hadn't a clue of what I wanted to do when I left, I did know that I would like a job which entailed travelling, the chance of promotion and of course a fair wage! After leaving school I worked on a building site for nine months whilst deciding and earned £60 a week. Once I left and joined Harrison's I was on the super wage of £54 a month! How times have changed!!
Unfortunately the company has come to an end as I knew it. In the mean time I have decided to put my trips online along with the pictures I took during those trips! It might bring back a few memories!!
If there are any ex- Harrison Line personnel out there who have film(Cine) or photos, especially of shipmates, I would love to here from you. Please get in touch. I would create individual collections and have them linked to your name, along with any details you provide, names, ships, dates, route etc.
I will put photos online from ANY Harrison line staff as long as it is relevant to their time with Harrison's.
