As always, shrouded in secrecy.
Next up - nondescript trucks with secret cargo spotted enroute to various dealer destinations, shadowed by anxious depositor paparazzi.
The Emira has achieved automotive celebrity status.
Game on!

Y'all, I spent way too much time on this.

This photo is looking directly at the sunset, with a very short distance to the water with no cranes, buildings, and other major obstructions, so I took a look at the sunset angle chart for port of Baltimore to see which RoRo location is most likely:

Amazing skills! I have some old family photos from the 1900s through to 1930s - can you help work out where they were taken? ;)
