Who am I?

Thanks to The Rock for identifying the ship as the Texaco Michigan. The ship was launched in 1902 as the Horace S. Wilkinson and sailed under several different names. The above photo, taken in the 1940’s, depicts the ship as the Michigan. The ship was converted to a tank barge in 1967.

Ookpik, I have home movies from '55 showing it sailing as the Horace S. Wilkinson up at Mackinac, as the bridge was being built.

I sent you a screencap.
