SS EDGAR ALLEN POE

Actually the ship your viewing is of the USS E. A. Poe (IX-103)....it is the "EX" SS Edgar Allen Poe.  
After connecting with a torpedo from the Japanese Submarine I-21 she lost her engines and boilers but she didn't sink.....so the Navy seen another opportunity for this ole girl to serve....and serve she did.
