Originally the German steamship SS Patricia, built in 1899 by Aktiengesellschaft Vulkan, Stettin, Germany for the Hamburg-America Packet Steamship Company. She was acquired by the U.S. Navy in 1919 and used briefly for transporting troops home from Europe after WW-I. Sold to Ellerman Lines in 1920, she was scrapped in 1921.

The vessel in the foreground is a 110-foot wooden Subchaser, one of 441 of these vessels built for the U.S. Navy during WW-I. See below for more information on these vessels:

For sure this photo does not show the PATRICIA of Hamburg-America. It is, I believe the WINIFREDIAN of Leyland Line, which did arrive in Boston on April 17-18. Kludas has PATRICIA as being handed over to the Navy in March 1919.

Having a close look at both ships mentioned above I must conclude that the ship in the picture has more resamblence to Winifredian than to Patricia, altoughed that they look very similar the promenade deck of the Patricia has a closed railing while the Winifredian has an open railing, as in this picture.
