When President Truman heads for sea,

an escort follows, and it’s not secret

service.  That was the other President Truman.  It’s Ellen McAllister today.

Lots of girls do escort service in the harbor, like Turecamo Girls and

McAllister Girls

Some escorts negotiate to go only

part of the way. 

Here’s another shot of Ellen seeing President Truman all the way out.  I must tell Joey that Homie seems to have prolonged his stay in the sixth boro.  Something here must have caught his fancy.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.  More girls soon.
