Ship Photos 1930s

August 18, 2013

I’ve posted several images of my cousin Fannie Black’s overseas excursions in the 1930s. Here are a few images on board the ship.
Here she is looking so stoic, beautiful, and strong.

Here’s a picture of the ship itself, called the Dzerzinsky. In this photo, the captain lectures the crew.

Here is a picture of a man who appears to be looking into some sort of navigational equipment.
