s.s Nicolas Bowater in NY, I think its the Hudson River berth if I had the photo processed in time!We used the Hudson River from Corner Brook in the winter and the East River from Liverpool NS in the summer
I am sure you will agree that, that is an excellent and nostalgic collection of photographs. A big thanks to Barry.
