Title:Port News: Napier
Article Abstract:News of recent (summer 1963-64) ship arrivals and other events in the port of Napier.Items include a description of an older poorly maintained ship arriving direct from Russia with a cargo of potash, which the writer speculates might be the beginning of a new trade for the port, as Russian potash considered of much finer grade than that from the Continent. Remaining items look at features of interest in two other more modern ships visiting the port: one unloading tobacco and general cargo from the USA, and the other loading tallow for China.
