She was originally a British liner. After the Spanish American War she
was retained by the Army and renamed U.S.A.T SHERMAN. In 1922 she was bought
by the Los Angeles Steamship

mate of CITY OF LOS ANGELES (the previously intended running mate, CITY
OF HONOLULU, sank on it's first voyage!) MOBILE was withdrawn and
