“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
always interesting. a video of this fire and sinking exists. thank you for the posts.
Brings to mind the S.S. Noronic fire in Toronto, seven years later. Worse this time, because it was full of sleeping passengers, berthed at the wharf overnight.Same stupid excuses.https://worldhistoryproject.org/1949/9/17/ss-noronic-fire
WOW, workers did dumb stuff back then also?!?!?!?! And this was before unions, right?
Nope. NYFC: union labor to the core.More tonnage sunk that week than Nazi subs.
Can that ship be refloated??
sunk by the NYCFD and the USN.
