Photograph showing 9-year-old Jean de Graaf standing on a board atop the keel of a cargo ship at Albina Engine & Machine Works in Portland. The photograph was taken during the keel laying for the ship on March 16, 1945. Jean de Graaf, the daughter of Oregon tulip grower Jan de Graaf, is facing front, wearing traditional Netherlands clothing, and holding a Dutch flag. Several unidentified Albina employees are crouched around her, working on the ship’s keel. According to two stories in the Oregon Journal on March 16, 1945, the cargo ship was to be the first of 20 that the Netherlands had ordered from the Albina shipyard for use in the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia.
