The SS Golden Eagle


Speaking of the SS Martin Mullen, I saw that Wikipedia recently featured an article about the SS Golden Eagle, launched as the SS Mauna Loa in 1919. This photo by Walter E. Frost was taken in 1932.

This little ship had a long career spanning troop activities to the Philippines during World War I, to shipping pineapples. It’s worth a read.
