On July 19th, 1913, Doris Kathleen Spicer (sitting) and her sister Norah embarked on a return voyage from Barry, England to Buenos Aires, Argintina.

They sailed on the s/s St. Oswald with their father, the ship's captain, Walter Blythe Spicer.

This is the diary of Doris and includes photographs she and her sister took enroute. She also collect a number of postcards. Other photos and postcards when of interest have been added. The handwritten text has been left in its original from with some spelling and punctuation ad
