Magro family dining aboard the Saturnia - en anglais seulement

Black and white photograph of the Magro family dining aboard the Saturnia. The photograph shows a group of adults seated around a long table covered in a white tablecloth. The group looks toward the camera and are raising their glasses in a toast. Two of the ship's crew members stand on either side of the table.

According to the archives at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia the Saturnia stopped at the following ports: New York, Boston, Halifax-Ponta Delgada, Lisbon, Casablanca, Gibraltar, Palma De Mallorca, Barcelona, Cannes, Genoa, Palermo, Naples, Patras, Venice and Trieste. The ship was originally built for the Cosulich Line and was transferred to the Italian Line in early 1935. Prior to World War II the ship was used to transport troops for the Italian Government to East Africa. It was then used by the International Red Cross for evacuation voyages and by the US Government as a hospital during the war. The ship was returned to the Italian Line in late 1946 and resumed its role as a passenger ship until 1965.
