Patris (1)
(Chandris: 1936-19??)
The first passenger ship owned by the founder of Chandris, John D. Chandris, was bought in 1936. She was the 1911 Fraissinet steamer Corte II. She operated various passenger services out of Venice for Mr Chandris, although not under the Chandris Lines banner. I have not yet obtained a postcard of her as the Patris.
