WHEN THE SHIPS CAME IN

Entertaining reminiscences and anecdotes of a Ship News reporter as he gives a lively potpourri of harbor tales around the Battery. The boats themselves, their staffs and passengers, interviews and incidents, Morgan, Diamond Jim, Bet-a-million Gates, Caruso, and other celebrities of the past come to life again in his stories; the sinking of the Lusitania and Titanic, the U-Boats off New London, the German bid for commercial supremacy of the seas. And finally, the small bits of color around the harbor, -- bar tenders, eating joints, etc.
