|SS Sturgeon Bay probably at the Norfolk Navy Yard in late 1921 or early 1922 soon after delivery to the Navy by
the Shipping Board. Upon arrival she was showing daylight through the seams in her sides. These images probably show her after caulking by the yard. The faded
inscription on her bow shows her previous occupation: "Sturgeon Bay, United States Shipping Board, Recruiting Service."
