Phoenix Bridge (American Freighter, 1918)
Photographed by M. Rosenfeld, New York, immediately after launching in 1918. She was built by the Submarine Boat Company, Newark, New Jersey, as their Hull 557. On 28 September 1918 the Navy Department directed that, when Phoenix Bridge was completed in October 1918, she was to be taken over for Naval Overseas Transportation Service operation, with the registry number ID 3767. However this was not done, and she remained in civilian hands.
The original print is in National Archives' Record Group 19-LCM.
