S.S. Avalon

Launched as the S.S. Virginia in 1891, the S.S. Avalon ferried passengers between the L.A. mainland and Santa Catalina Island in California beginning in 1920. After serving as a troop transport in WWII, the Avalon was retired in 1951 and sold for scrap nine years later. She ultimately sank in 1964 off Palos Verdes.
