What's that big car forward with the whitewall side mount - looks like it's missing its rear axle ?? ;- )

Rich, to me it appears to be part of the ship and a life preserver??

Probably the port side enclosed bridge wing.

That cabin is part of the ship, it is the pilot house for the ship's harbor pilot for docking. The white thing is a life preserver.
It would be interesting to see how those completed 1926 style cars were stowed in the ship's cargo hole.

Are you guys absolutely certain it isn't the Pierce Arrow from that Buster Keaton movie that was linked the other day ? They repainted it black ! ;- ) If you look really close you can see Dennis' parakeet perched on the foremast !

Rich B. I recognize your mystery car from a previous discussion. I understand no parakeets were harmed in it's modifications.

Doesn't the smoke stack say Ford on the side. Did Ford have there on ships?

Yup, it says Ford on the stack. I've seen photos before of Ford ships and train cars at the Rouge plant. See the guy walking along the center of the dock? He must be a real "T guy". He seems unconcerned that the T above him could fall. He also has a T shaped head, maybe from the last car that fell.

I did a Google search and came up with this:

Ford MV East Indian. Was built as a steam ship and Henry re-powered with diesels.

I believe it was wrecked in 1942.
MV East Indian
