Not to be confused with the cruise ship MS Ryndam

The SS Rijndam (also spelled Ryndam) was a ship that was built for the Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart-Maatschappij, more widely know in English as the Holland America Line in 1951. She was built by N.V. Dok en Werfmaatschappij Wilton-Fijenoord, Schiedam. The original intent of her design was to be designated as the freighter Dinteldyk (which was also designed to carry a small complement of passengers). A decision was made to have her redesigned as a liner in 1950, but she still retained the stout hull lines and sturdy machinery of a freighter.

The ship played a major role in post-war immigration from Europe making frequent voyages to New York and the Pier 21 immigration facility in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. In 1973, she was sold to a Panamanian subsidiary of a Greek shipping interest and extensively refitted with her bow line changed, many internal changes, and alterations to her superstructure. This was done to give her a more modern (at the time) 1970's design appearance. In 1988 she was sold to gaming interests and performed short cruises in the Gulf of Mexico under the name Pride of Mississippi, and in 1991 was renamed Pride of Galveston. In 1993, she was docked permanently in Gulfport, Mississippi and became the Copa Casino. When Copa Casino adopted a more permanent structure, a decision was made that she should be scrapped. In 2003, sunk on her way to the ship breakers in Alang, India. Her name is perpetuated today by Holland America's current cruise ship MS Ryndam.

Via the internet: Hostess begins initiate us into the mysteries of the distillation of essences, amid high copper stills and large basins dating another age. A glance is thrown in the laboratory of "nose", the creative artist of these wonderful fragrances, who works surrounded by hundreds of unusual scent vials, isolated from the surrounding corona by glass partitions.

Sounds very romantic. These first look to be regular stills for the making of alcohol but they are for magnificent fragrant perfumes. You would never have to put on any of your own when going to work there.

Dated Sept 27, 1952, this postcard is addressed to: Mr & Mrs. F Killinger, Alameda California
From Florence.

A early original real photo postcard, un-used and divided. This came from the family Sandmann in Germany. The fellow to the far left with his shirt off is a Sandmann. Quite the looker.
He was a soldier of the German Army.

Some of the men are wearing vintage leather leggings from the service. Others Swiss details can be seen. Only three woman in upper row.

Very chummy crowd, close friends. People of that era had no qualms about being very close and touching in photos. Today's world harbors a wall for some reason.

This measures 5.5" by 3.5"

Battles Death Shell Damage War Belgium 1914-1918 ~ Champagne & German WWI RPPC                                  

During The First World War of 1914-1918 the Allied Forces of Belgium, France, Great Britain, the Dominion Forces of the British Empire (Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, Newfoundland and South Africa), Portugal and the United States (from April 1918) made a stand against the Imperial German Army's advance and occupation of Belgium from 4th August 1914 and north-eastern France from 6th August 1914.

Here are six real photo postcards showing various shots of Shell damage;

Langemark : Langemarck on French, British and German maps, the village is known in military history as the scene of the first gas attacks by the German army, which marked the beginning of the Second Battle of Ypres in April 1915.

Machine gun stand near Ostend: The First Ostend Raid (part of Operation ZO) was the first of two attacks by the Royal ... port of Ostend during the late spring of 1918 during the First World War.

Lombartzyd Street at Westande: Lombard St. at Westend??

Mine-crater in the Champagne: Interesting photo showing a group German soldiers in a large crater, which also seems to have an entrance into tunnels.

World War One shell damage - can't read anything on the front

Schutzkorps - Englisch: Protection Corps - English

All six in good condition, a bit of toning due to age. Very rare find
