Belle’s Box – 3-33 and 3-65

This entry is part 328 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here. The cast of characters is located here. And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

The numbering of these posts had been modified to signify that I am posting items from my archival book three, a three precedes the item number.

These are photos of a Great Lakes freighter. I do not know why they are in the box.
