Aboard the S.S. City of Rome, 1894

Photo Details

The S.S. City of Rome: My great-grandfather, Asa Johnson (1872 - 1957)of Richmond, Virginia loved to travel. He attended the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 and the Exposition Internationale d'Anvers in Belgium in 1894. He crossed the Atlantic aboard the "City of Rome," a ship in the Norwegian Inman Line. This unidentified group of ladies and gentlemen were fellow travelers on board.

Kathy Pinna Ed, this photo and the other one that you shared of the SS City of Rome passengers is just fabulous! Your great grandfather really captured travel in the 1800's for us all. Thank you so much for sharing it!!
