Here is a a little something about "Anglia" as she left Oslo march 26, the day before Hellig Olavs first trip to New York. Hellig Olav got all the press coverage of course, but one of the journalist saw the point in showing the contrast between the brand new HO and the soon to be scrapped Anglia:

"Today The Anglia took off too. Completely loaded, dirty and awful it was anchored down in the "hole" at Jernbanebryggen (the railway pier), and the passengers swarmed on board."

That's what you get for working late. Of course it's Angelo. The article says Angelo, and I even checked out Angelo at your site to make sure the sailing date was correct. But something must have eclipsed my brain as my fingers hit the keyboard. But of course. Angelo it is. Could you correct it in the heading?
