EFC Design 1042: Illustrations


Scroll down for two photographs.



S.S. Crawl Keys (Design 1042) on 15 August 1918, the date of her delivery to the Shipping Board's Division of Operations. This "Laker" was built by the Great Lakes Engineering Works, River Rouge Plant, Ecorse, Mich. This design may be distinguished by the two pairs of kingposts fore and aft and the single light mast near the stack. The sign under the bridge wing says "I am 29 days old. Look me over."

S.S. Lake Mary, probably photographed during the early 1920s. This requisitioned "Laker" was built by the Great Lakes Engineering Works, Ecorse, Mich., to the design that the EFC later designated Design 1042. The kingpost pairs originally fitted fore and aft have been converted into goalposts and given topmasts, while the topmast has been removed from the light mast near the stack. (Shipscribe)
