1947   Date not certain. This interesting photo of Pier 35 was taken from Coit Tower, San Francisco by the Homer Kreps family. An ambiguous note on the obverse: "This is where the [P.F.E.L. freighter] China Bear was." It is quite possible that the ship on the right is in fact the China Bear since its configuration is consistent. The ship transported several FEBC families between the US and the Philippines. Additional photos search word "China Bear."
