S.S. Edgar F. Luckenbach (American Freighter, 1916)
Underway, circa 1916, probably upon completion of her construction by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co.
This ship was placed in commission on 11 July 1918 as USS Edgar F. Luckenbach. She was decommissioned and returned to her owner, the Luckenbach Steamship Company, on 30 October 1919. Her registry ID #, 4597, was probably assigned after she had completed her Naval service.
