S.S. "Coptic"



S.S. "Coptic"

Taken on the same trip as the one before described, from the forward deck, near the bridge. The former picture was made when there was no sunlight, but in this one the sun has just broken through the clouds. As the waters surge and roll, the tops of the waves are covered with a milk-white foam, making a striking contrast to the inky blackness of the billows. If there is any discrimination, this film is even better than No. 1, and it would prove a most attractive addition to any list of subjects.
