QUERING FAMILY MEMENTOS, JULY 1964

WALTER W., JINNY AND THEIR CHILDREN, WALTER C., GINGER (CASEY), AND LINDA

Ticket for the July 1964 voyage to the United States.

Baggage Claim Ticket.

Baggage Claim Ticket (other side). This tag does not show the two new upper decks built in late 1963.  I guess they had to use up the old tags before using newer ones.

Autograph from Ronald Mertz (EA Class of '67), brother of Kenny.

Autograph from Kenny Mertz (EA Class of '65). The Mertzs were on the same voyage returning to live in the United States.

Ginger's bracelet so if she ever got lost in a port, they would know where to return her.

Two of the many hangers that we have.  Note different logos on each one.  All hangers are still in use today.
