A Cold Job


From "New York Day by Day" in the New York Times on this day in 1940:

...What a cold job for those policemen who, in pairs, keep continuous guard over the Queen Mary and Normandie, from the vantage point of the elevated highway that runs alongside the piers!

...And I still hear the question asked, "Why is the Queen Mary painted camouflage gray?" She has not moved from her berth since trouble started. The Normandie retains her old coat of paint.
