Ship Models From Old World Markets
Keep Alive the Romance of the Ages
When, way back in 1662, Samuel
Pepys wrote “for [ do want one of my
own,” he voiced the sentiments of
every ship-loving man and boy of this
and every other age. And in this age
not only do men and boys want ship

scheme in the back of the feminine
heads is the feeling that nothing else
in the wide world adds just that touch
of smartness to the fireplace mantle
as the ship model, that exquisite crea

Follies of 1926, has completed the
casting of the 38 men and 50 girls

was written by Eugene Ford, New
