Containership OOCL OAKLAND spotted inbound for Halifax on 4th November 2013. It seems that few of this lines ships call here these days ,replaced by some of the new,larger Hapag-Lloyd vessels and ships of the APL line. They remain some of the better looking and maintained containerships calling at the Port of Halifax.Photo taken at McNabs Island on September 9th 2012.
