S.S. New York (American Passenger Liner, 1888)
In drydock at Liverpool, England, on 12 April 1917, showing mine damage received on 9 April, while she was approaching Liverpool at the end of a trans-Atlantic trip.
Among the ship's passengers on this voyage was Rear Admiral William S. Sims, USN, who was assigned to the British Admiralty as the U.S. Navy's representative.
Note the large hole in New York's hull side below the waterline, the U.S. flag neutrality marking (the United States had entered World War I after the ship began this trip), and her forward port side deck gun.
