Many folks will recognize this inquisitive little face,
along with the phrase “Kilroy was here”. It’s a little taste of home (for Anne),
as this originated at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, MA. According to the
history books, the picture and phrase were James Kilroy’s way of denoting that
he had finished counting the rivet holes in the ships being built at the yard.
This little fellow is drawn on the underside of the dock roof near the
nunneries on Chacachacare. The graffiti didn’t say “Kilroy,” but the picture is
unmistakable. You can just see Mr Mac
anchored across the bay.
