I don't have any photo's but the "Chaco Canyon" was a standard 'T2' design built by Kaiser Company, Portland, Oregon in 1944. In 1947 she was bought by Anglo-Saxon (Shell)and renamed "Thallepus". 12 September 1961 arrived Port Glasgow to be broken up.
"W. H. Libby" belonged to the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey and was built in 1921 by G. M. Standifer Construction Corp. of Washington State. She was 7992 gross, 12495 deadweight tons. I believe she survived the war but I don't know her fate.
