Matson Line

The ship is almost certainly one of the great white liners of the Matson Line which was largely responsible for turning Hawaii into a popular tourist destination. Most likely it is the SS Lurline of 1932. Her two running mates were laid up for a number of years after the war due to the expense of refitting them for passenger service after being used by the military. The Lurline had a great reputation for service and comfort and was very popular on the San Francisco to Hawaii route both before and after the war.
