Researching Dialcar III led to very little directly, but I stumbled onto this huge trove . . .

The scene in Guanabara Bay, with William C. O’Malley in the foreground.  Who was O’ Malley?  Anyhow, researching the vessel led–once again–to this Brazilian blog by Erik Azevedo.  Erik . .  you still there?   Onde você está?

Muito obrigado to my daughter Myriam for these fotos.   Just this week I learned of a Brazilian singer-songwriter playing in the outer boros of NYC.  Hear Mallu Magalhães here in English and here and here in Portuguese.
