Here are some more pictures from 1957. Wednesday is the fiftieth anniversary of the ships arrival. This past weekend a family friend and Plantation neighbor Marsha Sykes gave me copies of some pictures she found in her family collection of photos. There is a treasure trove of images in this collection. Here are some fun images.
|Maybe some one knows more about Miss Cranberry other than she was riding in a nice car in the parade celebrating the ship’s arrival.|
|Coles hill facing the ship was covered with bleachers for the arrival of the ship. It looks like a great place to watch the parade.|
|It must have been very exciting to be on the water in the harbor as the ship came in. There appears to have been a great deal of activity in the harbor. I have met many people who have told me they were in this boat or that boat and watched the ship arrive in Plymouth.|
The ship was towed into Plymouth after fifty-four days at sea. Note there was no breakwater back then.
