S.S. Santa Leonora (American Passenger Ship, 1919)
Underway in 1919, probably during her trials.
Constructed by the New York Shipbuilding Company of Camden, New Jersey, this steamer briefly served as USS Santa Leonora in July and August 1919 before being transferred to the U.S. Army. She was reacquired by the Navy in November 1921, converted to a submarine tender and served for the next two decades as USS Canopus (AS-9).
