She is the USS Chemung at the time of the photo she had the P no O-30, now AO 30, she is based on a T3-S2-A1 tanker hull, built by Bethlehem originally as the Esso Annapolis - but commissioned straight into the USN) in 1939. Scrapped in 1971

Am I alone wondering if the fuelling was avgas! Great image, pity about the distortion, but better seen than not in my book.
