Around the World With Aunt Retta!
The prompt for this week is Valentine.
|Arthur (Dan) Stewart|
Yet, 13 months later to the day, on August 27, 1948, Aunt Retta left New York City on the Santa Isabel V. 33, bound for Columbia, South America and scheduled to disembark at Buenaventura.
As it turns out, Retta's husband George Kingsley was a photographer, and they spent several years in Columbia while he was on an assignment for Forbes, working on a book.
I would love to be in touch with any of Aunt Retta's descendants, if you find this blog please contact me!
