Bill Miller's post card from Manhattan

Mais uma pequena colaboração do meu amigo Bill Miller sobre os antigos terminais de navios de passageiros do porto de Nova Iorque e o seu aspecto actual.
"Looking east from Weehawken, we can see the original Luxury Liner Row, the longtime base of the greatest and some of the grandest Atlantic liners.​ I snapped this photo just six weeks ago.​
​But now to memory lane: The attached photo dates back to 54 years, from January 1960, of Luxury Liner Row. ​​At the top, the HOMERIC is being undocked & heading off on a Caribbean c​ruise; at dock from top to bottom are the GRIPSHOLM, OCEAN MONARCH, ITALIA, QUEEN ELIZABETH, MAURETANIA & BERLIN".
