    Constitution

    The S.S. CONSTITUTION was laid up many years in the St. John's River, Jacksonville, Florida. This was taken about 1973. I would guess that she was there 5+ years or more.

    This is the fifth picture in a set of views of the Constitution undergoing repairs in the Baltimore dry dock in Maryland in April 1954.

    Another view of Luxury Liner Row in New York City, and this time, the picture was taken in the late 1950’s, or early 1960’s. A classic view showing what would prove to be some of the last great North Atlantic Liners.
