Did Captain Smith ever sail on the Pacific ocean or visit the west coast of the U.S.? I am doubtful.Hello, I have a photo it is one from a collection of old Hollywood photographs I have. It is stamped on the back press photo, San Francisco...CALIF. Looks like Captain Smith, but crew wearing spectacles?. Any ideas? Thank you much, Lori
New York is on the east coast of the US and the ocean between Europe and New York is not the Pacific ocean.Yes he sailed to new york. This is commom knowledge. How long have you been a member of this site?
Please be civil.Yes he sailed to new york. This is commom knowledge. How long have you been a member of this site?
No, but San Francisco is.New York is not the Pacific ocean.
A correction: Smith was second officer on Coptic on the Pacific service, from 1882 to 1883. Source: Cooper's E.J.: The Story of Edward John Smith.Smith was not assigned to any of the White Star ships on the White Star/Occidental & Oriental Pacific service.
Captain Smith did for a brief period stay in San Francisco and sail to China. That was earlier in his career probably before his White Star Line service as Captain of Lizzie Fennell.Did Captain Smith ever sail on the Pacific ocean or visit the west coast of the U.S.? I am doubtful.
I was just going to say the same thing. LOLYes, I was going to say this photo looks to be from well after Captain Smith had been gone. The clothes alone look like the 1920's. Looking closer at his face, Smith's nose was not that big
