The cruiser Atlantic, fourth naval vessel to bear that name, goes down the ways of the New York Shipbuilding Corp. at Camden, after its christening February 6th. Mrs. Margaret Mitchell Marsh, author of “Gone with the Wind”, sponsored the vessel. Citizens of Atlanta raised $63,387,879 in war bond sales for the new ship, after the third ship of the same name was sunk off Guadalcanal. Mrs. Marsh also sponsored the third Atlanta, February 1944.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
