MS STOCKHOLM: FROM DORIA TO ASTORIA
presented by Doug Newman and Tom Rinaldi
Community Church Assembly Room, 40 East 35th Street, Manhattan

More than 60 years since the sinking of the ANDREA DORIA, mementos associated with the ship's disastrous demise are still prized by collectors. Remarkably, one of the most noteworthy relics of the tragedy is the ship that rammed and sank the famed Italian liner in 1956: the former motor liner STOCKHOLM is still sailing today as the cruise ship ASTORIA. At age 69, the ASTORIA is not only one of the oldest large passenger ships in history, she is just about the last ex-liner still in cruise service. PONY Branch members Doug Newman and Tom Rinaldi had the opportunity to sail on this fascinating vessel earlier this year. They will present an illustrated history of the former STOCKHOLM's colorful past and provide a photographic tour of what is without a doubt one of the most interesting ships in the cruise business today.
