These are probably findable in the Library of Congress site, but they struck me as worth a look. Subject of the story is sad, but the author or editor has a good eye.

If the NYT's paywall blocks you, clearing cookies would probably fix it.

That's a heartbreaking article but I applaud their unflinching look at history and the photographs are very interesting. Thanks for sharing.

James, those are some great photos!
I love how they used those hanging platforms on the side of the ship, for loading those bananas.

These are findable on https://www.shorpy.com, too. I've seen the banana boat photo recently, but I have no idea how far back it was.... Be careful... Shorpy can be a Major Thief of Time!

Shorpy is a black-and-white hole! If you pass the event horizon you never return
