I found this scrapbook at a flea market a while back. It chronicles the survivors of a ship that was torpedoed by the Japanese off Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Nineteen sailors including the captain – many from San Francisco – survived at sea in a life boat for a week or so. The scrapbook has some newspaper articles, an letter from a typewriter company (on awesome letterhead), and a telegram (the earliest Twitter?) which simply states “Honolulu Safe”. I am donating it to the San Francisco History Center.
