Image Source: based on the ship's image found at the Web site "American Family Immigration History Center" (ellisislandrecords.org) as that site existed in September 2003, where the image is stated to be from the Peabody Essex Museum. About the ship the site says that the Verona had room for 2,560 passengers (60 first class, 2,500 third class). That site is © 2000 by The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. The same image is found as "S.S. VERONA, 1908 Italia Line (Courtesy The Peabody Museum of Salem)" in Michael J. Anuta's Ships of Our Ancestors (Baltimore: 1983), page 336. Note: Judging by the color of the funnel, this photograph may have been taken after the 1913 transfer of the Verona to the Navigazione Generale Italiana steamship company. The SS Verona was sunk on 5 November 1918 near Punta di Pellaro [south of Reggio di Calabria] (Bonsor op. cit.).
