Blog Reader Makes Incredible Discovery

After publishing a post from Julian H. Preisler, we got this incredible note from a reader. What a random and exciting discovery!

My name is Nicholas Van Herpen and am a 4 Star Mariner and regularly check out the H/A blog. Today I found a photo from a Mr. Julian H. Preisler showing some photos of his Mother traveling on the Nieuw Amsterdam back in 1954. The photo that immediately got my attention was the one with people resting in their deck chairs. The couple in the middle of the photo along the railing and dressed all in black are indeed my grandparents Johannes and Cornelia Van Herpen. I know this to be true since they visited us in the USA in 1954 and traveled on the old Nieuw Amsterdam.
