I scanned these old photos from an old scrapbook that has been laying around the MMP union hall for at least 20 years. From what I can tell, they show the Beaver State, Steel Seafarer, and Hawaiian Trader (Matson?). Anyway, maybe you will be interested. I'm sure whoever left them in the hall doesn't care, even if he's still among the living.

By the way, that scrapbook has lots more pictures. I chose ones that showed good details of the ships. There are a few others that show crew members. All the photo quality is pretty bad though.
