Notes:

The ship has been cut for scrap. See the LA Times article.
The pictures show the entrance to the Catalina Terminal, and the berths around there. I don't know which exactly is 96, but it's very close.


From the Guidebook:

Commonly referred to as the Great White Steamer, the ship was specially built by William Wrigley to serve his Catalina Island as a passenger ferry. She was christened on May 23, 1924. During World War II, she was requisitioned for use as a troop carrier, but in 1946 she resumed her voyages to Avalon.
