Footnotes

  • The steam yacht Iolanda was on of the most distinctive yachts of her time. She was a departure from most of the Cox & King designs with her high superstructure and tall graceful funnel. Shortly after her commissioning, her owner, Morton Plant took her on a 33,000 mile to the Mediterranean cruise, then to Japan and returned via the same route. Iolanda was the second of four steam yacht owned by Morton Plant, and after World War I Iolanda was managed by Camper & Nicholson before being sold to Mr. Moses Taylor of New York's National City Bank. During World War II she was used as a survey ship, and was then sold into commercial service in 1947.

    NB: The dates for Antonio De Simone, the yacht and the date of the painting are off slightly, most likely that the dates for Antonio De Simone are off by a year or two.
