A delightful Postcard of the SS Patricia

The Deck Plans:

I hereby wish to thank Johannes van der Leen of the Netherlands, for without him this page would not have been possible as he kindly sent me both images 1 and 2 as seen below on this page.

1; is the delightful “General Deck Layout” that provides us wish an overview of the ship and her decks, whilst 2; is the excellent “SS Patricia Deck Plan” that gives us a complete view of her original layout with her three classes as well as the two dormitories located forward on D Deck.

Once again, thank you Johannes, your help is greatly appreciated!

Reuben Goossens.
