Those don't appear to be Italia Line colours. She does look familiar though....

I believe it's the Holland America Line.  I'm looking for the ship now.

Found it!  It s the Vera Cruz

You gave yourself away Luzparis - being Portuguese that is.  I spent hours looking at Holland America Lines and other similar funnel colors until I stumbled on the Companhia Colonial de Navagacao shipping line flag - it closely resembled the funnel colors.  It was academic from there once I put your nationality and the shipping line together.

Can't seem to find much on her other than photos but will keep looking.  Looking for her was fun!

Here's a link to some more photos - http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/Portugal_Colonial.html#anchor2201586

Just read the story on Wikipedia.  That is some story and can only imagine what the passengers an crews were going through for 11 days!
