Palermo and Surronding Area from the Cunard Daily Bulletin, RMS Ivernia Edition for Wednesday, 28 June 1905. GGA Image ID # 1319036bc9

PALERMO is one of the ports visited by the vessels of the Cunard Hungarian-American service on their voyage to New York from the Adriatic. The rock shown in the background is a limestone mass 2,000 feet high, ruggedly grand in places and in others carpeted with the softest verdure. The mole, which is also shown makes a capital and safe harbor which is ever full of the kaleidoscopic life of an Italian port.

The old cathedral of Messina dates back to 1098. From Messina and Palermo entrancing views are obtained of the great Etna one of the most typical of volcanoes.

Child-Life on a Cunarder from the Cunard Daily Bulletin, RMS Ivernia Edition for Wednesday, 28 June 1905.

The accompanying pictures afford some glimpses of child-life onboard Cunard Steamers. A Baby Show is always an exhibition of interest and when held at sea, especially so. Clearly, the little ones are happy and comfortable; in fact, their smiling faces furnish unsolicited testimony to the steadiness of the ship by which they were traveling, and the great time they were having.
