USS Pocahontas (ID # 3044)
Underway at sea during her first U.S. Navy trans-Atlantic voyage, September 1917.
The original photograph is printed on post card ("AZO") stock, bearing the inscription (on its reverse): "Princess Irene with four thousand troops.". Originally commissioned as USS Prinzess Irene (or Princess Irene) in July 1917, the ship was renamed Pocahontas at the beginning of September, shortly before the beginning of this voyage. However, the earlier name is still visible on her bow.
