Ferries at Picton
The photo shows ferries from Strait Shipping and the Interisland Line awaiting departure from Picton for Wellington, a photo taken about a year ago. These are the two significant operators nowadays of ferry services - little goes between Nelson and Wellington or between Wellington and Lyttelton anymore.
That's the situation now, but in years past it was quite different - for a complete history of the ferry companies, their ferries, the events and the people get the book Strait Crossing: the ferries of Cook Strait through time by Vic Young in our online shop.
