Shipyard Contrast


I found this old photo tucked into an old photo album at the thrift store, and felt it would be an appropriate "find" for today - Veterans Day!

I was intrigued by the two ships - a brilliant white cruise ship docked next to a dark gray military ship of some kind. I'm not sure when the photo was taken, but it seems to me both cruise ships and military ships are all much, much larger now.

I am linking this with "Vintage Weekly" ... for the first time in a long time!

That is a fun photo, quite a contrast. I wonder when it was taken?

an odd combination of ships! I wish the photographer had mentioned something on the back of the photo. One could write a mystery short story from this wonderful image.

Great find, could be the 1960's or 70's perhaps. Thanks for sharing:)

I wonder what the story is behind this one?! I LOVE it! I'm with Norma--I think a mystery short story is in order!
