Default J.M.WHITE and Others........ooooooh Gross

Spittoons on the deck. Look at these familiar pictures of the JM WHITE. I have often wondered how they keep those spittoons on the deck from blowing away. Pity the poor cabin boy who had to empty them every morning.
The second picture shows the water cooler, look below it...a spittoon. Can you imagine getting a drink of water from one of the two community cups while the person next to you hacked up a big hocker? Hope his aim was good.
Look at the end of each table lined up down the main cabin, a stratigicaly placed spittoon.
All boats of the era were similarly equipped. What gross habits they had back then.
