Photo of the Day … May 12, 2023

SS American Victory at Superior, Wisconsin … one of those lucky finds while driving from Fargo, North Dakota to Green Bay, Wisconsin … just had time for a quick stop to take the photo.

The SS American Victory had a long history starting in June 1942 when, while still being built, she was acquired by the US Navy for war duty … the screenshot below details her history …

Unfortunately just over a year after I took my photo the American Victory was towed to Turkey and broke up for scrap.

Photo taken on May 12, 2017.
