"Of all national assets, archives are the most precious:
they are the gift of one generation to another,
and the extent of our care of them marks the
extent of our civilization." Arthur Doughty.

1972 ❖ S.S. VIRGINIA V Anniversary Party

The Steamer VIRGINIA V made a special "sentimental journey" to all her former steamer stops on the West Pass (Colvos Passage) in this way commemorating the old WEST PASS  TRANSPORTATION CO  and celebrating her own 50th anniversary of entering service.
The boarding took place on the north side of Pier 54 (Ivar's.)
A ticket was required.
This one was saved by Carl Weber,
past president of the P.S.M.H.S.

Mr. Weber also had handy his chart of the day.
