Launch of SS Virginia at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company of Newport News, Virginia on August 18, 1928.
"The 'Virginia' and her sister ships 'California' and 'Pennsylvania' have set new standards in sea-going comfort as well as in marine engineering."
She served the Panama Pacific Line, part of the American Line Steamship Corp, from New York to California via the Panama Canal route. In 1937, changing fees to cross the canal and other factors led to her sisters and her to be sold to the US Maritime Commission and refitted to make her fireproof and other safety features were added as per federal regulations. She was renamed SS Brazil and carried passengers and cargo from New York to South America from 1938 to 1941 and 1948 to 1958. During WWII she served as a Troop ship and returned soldiers home after the war. She was scrapped in 1964.
"Launching of the All-Electric Liner 'Virginia'" by Walter L. Greene, commissioned by General Electric.

MG 27 Experimental Machinegun
Heinrich Vollmer (1885-1961) was one of the most prominent figures of the German design school and his established weapons include the German MP 38 and 40 submachine gun, as well as the MG 34 machine gun. In the 1920s, he owned the Vollmer Werke Maschinenfabrik in Bibberach am Riss, where he developed automatic infantry weapons, especially submachine guns. It was here that the prototype of the air-cooled machine gun, later known as the MG 27, was developed in the early 1920s.
The function of the weapon was based on the principle of a locked breech with a short recoil of the barrel. The breech was locked by a pivoting bolt, which was guided in helical grooves in the bolt carrier. A drum magazine with a capacity of 30 rounds was used to feed the weapon. Apart from the letters and the numeral V.G. 4a stamped on the top of the bolt housing cover, the specimen bears no company description. The marking is probably an abbreviation of the words Versuchs Gewehr 4a, i.e. experimental rifle. To date, only two examples of this weapon have survived in collections. One of them was acquired by the museum in 1994 by transfer from Prototypy, a. s.
Calibre: 7,92 mm Mauser
Overall length 1550 mm
Barrel length 717 mm
Intentional length 797 mm
Magazine capacity 30 rounds
Weight of weapon with empty magazine 11.48 kg

Marie of Romania Marie of Romania (born Princess Marie Alexandra Victoria of Edinburgh; 29 October 1875 – 18 July 1938) was the last Queen of Romania as the wife of King Ferdinand I. After the outbreak of World War I, Marie urged Ferdinand to ally himself with the Triple Entente and declare war on Germany, which he eventually did in 1916. During the early stages of fighting, Bucharest was occupied by the Central Powers and Marie, Ferdinand and their five children took refuge in Western Moldavia. There, she and her three daughters acted as nurses in military hospitals, caring for soldiers who were wounded or afflicted by cholera. After the war, on 1 December 1918, the historical region of Transylvania, following Bessarabia and Bukovina, united with the Old Kingdom. Marie, now queen of Greater Romania, attended the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, where she campaigned for international recognition of the enlarged Romania. In 1922, she and Ferdinand were crowned in a specially-built cathedral in the ancient city of Alba Iulia, in an elaborate ceremony which mirrored their status as queen and king of a united state. As queen, Marie was very popular, both in Romania and abroad.
