San Francisco Bay area labor union members were crucial to the restoration and preservation of Franklin Roosevelt’s Presidential Yacht, raising funds, working as volunteer labor and mobilizing political clout for government funding.
They may now enjoy watching their salute to “labor’s best friend” used as a platform for nouveau-riche wine cruises.
“Allow yourself to be transported back into an era where taste, elegance, and fabulous meals were a way of life.”
Wine cruise visitors are advised of a jackets “suggested” dress code which appears to have been violated by FDR while on board.
