Sold Without Reserve

A collection of 56 glass positive photographs chronicling a voyage from Hamburg to various ports in the West Indies and Central America plus a typewritten account of the voyage and an explanation of the slides by Lt. Colonel J. H. Grieve M.C.

Some of Grieve's account would be considered quite racist today: "... and at Santander (slide 3) quite a weired assortment of dagoes (joined the ship)." And later a very racist account of a mixed race family joining the ship in the West Indies.

An interesting period piece.

slides all 80mm x 80mm and numbered. All in good condition, the slides in a specialist slide box.

Due to the weight (3.5kg) and the fragility of the slides I will not be offering international shipping - Sorry.


Note: I will never send anyone a Second Chance Offer. If you receive a Second Chance Offer, claiming to come from me, please ignore it, because it is definitely a scam.
