#894:  S.S. Catalina

<< 1 2 3 >>


Original location: Port of Los Angeles, Catalina Terminal, Berth 96.





No Plaque


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.
