Default Not Politically Correct

If the GORDON C. GREENE and GOLDEN EAGLE could magically be brought back today, they would be curiousities, not as a way many people would want to spend a vacation. Nothing about them would be acceptable, much less legal today. The world has completely changed since either one of them last ran.
A good example of this is some of the things that went on for passenger entertainment. Today we find this, not only unacceptable, but also extremely offensive.
These photos are from the Murphy Library collection.

2. The winner
3. Bobbing for quarters
