Mobil Meridian or Mobil Seminole

Hi folks,

My name is Claudio Cambon, and I am a documentary photographer who 10 years ago spent several months with this ship, renamed the SS Minole, as it made its last voyage from Baton Rouge to Bangladesh, carrying a load of PL-480 grain, and was scrapped on the beach in Chittagong.

When I came back I found my way to some former crew who knew the ship better than the rum run crew that had been hired on a one time basis to take her over. I photographed and interviewed them, and integrated some of their photographs into my project. Bethlehem Steel also provide me with some launch and shakedown pictures from the now defunct Sparrow's Point Yard where she was built in 1961; Mobil shipping had some blueprints they let me photograph.

Although I am mostly done with this project, I am always on the lookout for more information, be it historical materials, photographs, or testimonies on the part of former crew and builders. Please feel free to contact me anytime at XXX if you have anything you would like to share.

Thanks, and happy holidays to everyone!

Claudio Cambon
