S.S. ARGENTINA

Artifacts

 

S.S. Argentina  Stateroom Key

S.S. Argentina Key for Stateroom 208.  This would have been the Upper Deck on the port side aft.

Same key, but showing other side of tag.  Oh, oh, someone did not return their key.

A commemorative ceramic hand colored plaque (can be hung, note holes on top of its back) or it can be used as a candy dish.  It was given to all who took the maiden voyage on the S.S. Argentina in December 1958.  Bellman Jack Otte also showed us his dish and he said that William T. Moore personally handed it to him on the first day of the voyage.
