This is part of a series of posts dedicated to the immigration story of Debs Webster and his family.
Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs.
|The S.S. Brazil - July 1952|
|On Board the S.S. Brazil July 1952|
This week’s Sepia Saturday theme suggests amusement or fun.
So I thought I’d share these photos of children having fun on board the S.S. Brazil. I don’t know if this was someone’s birthday party or just one of the activities planned for the kids on board the ship.
I imagine a two-weeks or so voyage in the confines of an ocean liner would require a certain degree of creativity on the part of the ship’s employees as they tried to keep the kids entertained and happy. This is 1952 after all. There were no hand-held video games, ipods, ipads, laptops, wii or X-box game systems. Simpler times, right?
These photos are part of a collection of vintage postcards and photographs belonging to my grandfather, Debs Webster. If you've been following along with my Webster family's story, you will know that this branch of the Webster family tree came from America to Brazil and then returned to America again.
In my previous installment of this story we found my Grandpa Debs and his family boarding the ship the S.S. Brazil bound for New York City. Also in this previous post I included a vintage postcard of the S.S. Brazil. You can read the post here.
