|104k||USS Gold Star (AG-12) underway at Shanghai, China. According to the original caption of this photo, dated 2 September 1937, "Gold Star was scheduled to sail from Shanghai for Kobe, Japan, on 3 September 1937 with 25 Americans, mostly the wives of officers and ex-servicemen." This was probably the limit of her passenger accommodations, possibly located in the area under the bridge, and many Americans were fleeing the port in ships of other nations. This photo may in fact show the ship a year or two before this voyage.
