Marine Robin 4 - 6 : A Boat Load
It would certainly be difficult to estimate the number of individuals traveling on the Marine Robin. The whole number seems to be lined up along the railings and ship sides. I guess they all wanted to see the skyline of New York City on that docking day.
Starting at the front (bow), the men [and some women yet to be seen!] must have been told to come on deck for the series of pictures.
Numbers 4 - 6 are shown, and I guess they are taken at various distances from the dock.
Anyone have additional information and stories regarding this ship please post in the comment section. Hundreds and hundreds of men and some women, certainly a boat load.
A boat load indeed!
Pictures 4 - 6 out of 20 total, taken 1946.
