Vintage Photos of a Masculine Icon

Foreword Review — Nov / Dec 2000

Sailors on the deck of a battleship, guns like horizontal smoke stacks accentuating their bravado. Sailors standing in pugilistic readiness. Sailors in camaraderie and tomfoolery.

Kevin Bentley has amassed a collection of old pictures in Sailor: Vintage Photos of a Masculine Icon.

Images of twentieth century American seamen are portrayed on and off duty.
