S.S. Saint Louis (American Passenger Liner, 1895)
Photographed during the winter of 1917-1918, while operating as a troop transport. Note ice on the harbor surface.
Saint Louis had recently been repainted in pattern camouflage. She became USS Louisville (ID # 1644) in April 1918 and received another camouflage scheme in the early summer of that year.
