    The former Italia liner Augustus did not have long at her Manila berth after I saw her. How lucky I was to have managed to have seen her and spend some time aboard her. It is a great sadness that after so many years in a static role she could not be spared from the scrap yards.

    I apologize about the quality. Taken in Manila Bay, early December, 1979. I was onboard the MONTANA (a sister ship) under arrest and at anchorage. States Lines was bankrupt, and allotment checks were bouncing. Lots of crew members with familes were not having a very merry holiday time.
