Photo Page 6

The photos is this section, as well as several others on the Building of Hector page, the Tsingtao & Shanghai
Ports of Call pages, as well as a few other photos & many documents, were found by Corri Byrne,
Hector's last Photo Mate, who removed them from Hector at the time of her decommissioning.
Due to some unusual circumstances, these items ended up with his personal effects and he rediscovered them
after having them in storage for 15 years, and he wanted to make sure that they didn't remain "lost".
The majority of the pictures in this section were scanned from their original negatives.
