SS "Anadarko Victory"
 - a great shot of a Victory ship with smoke from the funnel - -

Unfortunately I have forgotten when and where it was photographed, but I think that it must have been in 1968 in the San Pedro or Wilmington area of L.A., USA, and since it is painted grey, I presume it is a ship from the Military Sealift Command, - or????.
