Description

Full length portrait Ivan de Burgh Daly, on the deck of the S.S. Minnekahda, with a mast, lifeboat and machinery behind.

The image is inscribed in ink, verso: ‘Minnekhada 1929 I de B Daly’. From a collection of snapshots taken by Mary Pickford on board, captioned and donated by her. Backed with cardboard.

The S.S. Minnekahda was a U.S. Atlantic Transport converted troopship, repurposed as a single-class passenger ship. Archibald Vivian Hill (1886-1977) organised its use to transport European scientists attending the International Physiological Congress in Boston, U.S.A., in 1929.
