WW I Photo

During WW I

William T. Shorey (1859 – 1919) was a late 19th Century American whaling ship captain known to his crew as the Black Ahab. He was born in Barbados July 13, 1859 and spent his life at sea. He became the only black captain operating on the west coast of the United States in the late-1880s and 1890s. He obtained his certification in 1885.

A delightfully cute ad from 1919 for Nut Tootsie Rolls
