SS Jeremiah O'Brien Photo Tour

SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN is one of the many Liberty Ships built during World War II. After the war, she was mothballed in Suisun Bay, Calif., and remained there until 1979, when she headed to San Francisco (under her own power!) to be opened as a museum. Today, she is located at Pier 45 at San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf where she is kept in a fully functional condition. Her volunteer crew regularly sails the JEREMIAH O'BRIEN in San Francisco Bay and off the US west coast. One of the highlights of the ship's museum career was in 1994, when the O'BRIEN set sail for Great Britain and France for the 50th D-Day anniversary, returning to the place where she saw action 50 years earlier. The photos below were taken by me on March 15, 2010, during a visit to the SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN museum at San Francisco, Calif.
