What’s this?  Where?  Answer follows.  It’s not really sepia per se, just an approximation.


I took this foto a week ago, then stripped out the color.  It’s Yemitzis, the former


PRR Philadelphia, launched 1954.  Major modifications have happened between the two incarnations.


Here’s another foto I took last week, Resolute.  With its ample pudding, it’s a perfect candidate to be sepia-fied.


The top foto was taken by Fred Wehner a few days ago;  that’s not Rosie the riveter but Capt. Wendy Marble, working to prep her vessel  Urger, for the 2013 season.  Here, here, and here are some full color fotos previously featuring Urger, who initially looked like this over a century ago.

Thanks to Paul Strubeck for the foto of PRR Philadelphia.
