Please Note: All ssmaritime as well as my other related maritime & cruise sites are 100% non-commercial and privately owned sites. Be assured that I am NOT associated with any shipping or cruise companies or agencies or any other organisations! The author has been in the passenger shipping industry since May 1960, but although retired and unwell, I occasionally attempt to write an article now and then, in order to bring enjoyment and pleasure to ship enthusiasts past passengers and crew.

Here we see such a fine painting of the Manoora

Manoora’s Brochure and Deck Plan

This page presents two fine items an excellent T.S.M.V. Manoora brochure and a full Accommodation Plan of the ship, which was sourced from the original that was sent to me by Mr. Jack Dwyer. However I had to reduce the Plan considerably as it was in a rather large format, but I am pleased with the result!

As you many have read on Page Two, it was Jack Dwyer’s parent’s, Mollie and Frank Dwyer who sailed on the Manoora, and I am certainly most appreciative to Mr. Dwyer for providing all the items of memorabilia as found on previous page and below. I am sure that all these will be of great interest to my many readers!

For interest, if you have arrived at this page per Search Engine, you can locate the details of Mr and Mrs Dwyer Senior’s voyage on page two. The link is located on the Manoora INDEX, at the bottom of the page.

But now, let us remember the wonderful days of this fine Australian coastal liner!!

I watched them come, I watched them go and I watched them die.”
