Einstein ... 1930

OOPS! In my previous post I said 1931 - should have said 1930, and I said it was on the S.S. California when I should have said the Belgenland. This was in December 1930, on the first leg of my mum's voyage around the world on the S. S. Belgenland. The trip started in New York, and Professor Einstein and his wife were on it for the first leg (New York to California) where he was invited to speak at Stanford University and other locations in California. Here he is in his stateroom. I especially love the little slippers he has on his sock-less feet. So 21st Century! My mum was working in the gift shop of the ship.
