From Wikipedia:

SS Andrea Doria, was an ocean liner for the Italian Line home-ported in Genoa, Italy, most famous for her sinking in 1956, when 46 people died. Named after the 16th-century Genoese admiral Andrea Doria, the ship had a gross register tonnage of 29,100 and a capacity of about 1,200 passengers and 500 crew.

The ship was named after the famous Italian admiral, Andrea Doria, heroically depected in the portrait. Her sister ship was the SS Cristoforo Colombo. Her first captain was the godfather of my best friend of forty years. I just found out last night that he died recently. That had something to do with my web searches that lead me to the portrait. i am devastated but love the portrait. I'm just confused, sleepy and devastated at this point. Good morning, all!

Andrea Doria (1466 - 1560) lived to be 96. Just think how many plague epidemics he survived during his lifetime.

I like Donatello's David for its Renaissance sensuality, especially the suggestive feather caressing his inner thigh.

American men did not start regularly wearing deodorant until the 1950s. But people knew how to keep themselves clean. The man smells must have been magnificent by the end of the day.

Typical men's room conversation circa 1953:

"Come on John, we've got a committee meeting in 5 minutes."

"Hold on, Steve, I'm starting to stink. I need to swab my pits."

Did you all read the trial of Oscar Wilde? This is what it was back then...or worse. No thanks
