This is a photo from the Winter/Spring 1966-67 issue of "The Mooremack News."  It shows Purser Bill Kelly getting his hair cut by Mary McLaren, 19, who at the time was the only female barber on an American liner.  Her aim is to snip around the world, and she is off to a good start on a 63-day Sea-Safari to the Caribbean, South America, Africa and the Mediterranean.  (Purser Bill Kelly later served with Robert Melsopp on the new S.S. Argentina.)


Cordoroy Council of America photographed leading fashion models aboard the S.S. Brasil with delightful 1960 fashions for January newspapers and magazines.  This is work?
