This one's labeled "Ferry tender at Cherbourg." I have no way of knowing, but I hope this photo is from the twenties, the years when the lost generation, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Henry Miller, and many other Americans headed of to Paris to become writers, painters, or drunks. An era I wish I had seen.
Now, for a bit of shameless self promotion. Every so often I pick up a few non photographic bits of ephemera. I also find images from the net that I enjoy visiting from time to time. (Considering my background and interests, it's no surprise that those images are mostly photographs.) To make things easy, I've put them up on another blog, www.fairuse-wjy.blogspot.com. For those who have enjoyed this nautically themed post, in the past few months, I've put up an activities schedule from an Italian ocean liner, a passenger list from The Matson Lines, and a nineteenth century oil painting of a S.F. Bay ferry.
