View of steam ship moored at pier, with smaller vessel alongside. This photograph shows the ship 'Orsova' of the Orient Line at Railway Pier, Port Melbourne, circa 1913. Stanley Fletcher was training to become a professional photographer with Powers Studio before World War One, but then he enlisted to become a serviceman. Photographs like these could be printed as postcards and there are many postcards of the 'Orsova' and Railway Pier in existence. This photograph also shows a steam tug boat alongside the 'Orsova'.
