Steamships - Steamer Larchmont 1907

Steamer Larchmont, the Joy Line Sunk on Collision off Block Island. Feb. 11, 1907. Photograph and Copyright 1907 by H. Ladd Walford.

No caption on reverse.

This sidewheel steamship, built in 1913 by the American Ship Building Company of Wyandotte, Michigan, had an interesting history. Its original name, Seeandbee, was based upon the name of its owners company, the Cleveland and Buffalo Transit Co. It was converted to a training aircraft carrier, by the Navy, in May 1942, and designated as an unclassified miscellaneous auxiliary, IX-64. Its name was changed to Wolverine and it operated on Lake Michigan as a training aircraft carrier. This ship was the Navy's first sidewheel aircraft carrier.

About this Webpage

I have created this webpage as a scrapbook of sorts to showcase some of the more interesting postcards from my postcard collection. Much of my collection is inherited from my grandmother, Mildred E. Berwick Casartello. I have categorized the postcards in various groups, so you will find them on multiple pages. The tags line at the bottom of each postcard entry has links to each category that you will find that entry on.
