Damiani family during lifeboat drill on the Olympia - solo in inglese

Black and white photograph of the Damiani family aboard the Olympia. The family is lined up and wearing lifejackets with other passengers in preparation for a lifeboat drill aboard the ship. Sam Damiani (standing second from left holding his hands in front), along with his younger brother Fred and his parents Vilde and Giulio are visible in the foreground of the image. The text printed at the bottom right of the photograph which reads, "Memories on Board Olympia," suggests that the photograph was taken as a momento of the voyage by the ship's staff photographer.

According to the archives at Pier 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia the Olympia stopped at the following ports: New York, Boston, Halifax, Quebec-Azores, Lisbon, Genoa, Naples, Messina, Malta, Piraeus, Cyprus and Haifa. Sam Damiani and his family landed at Pier 21 on May 3, 1966.
