This may be kind of hard for someone to read and understand unless you are a ship buff...
RARE FIND! Vintage "SS Hawaii" - IMO 5144485 / "Cape Juby" (T-AK 5077) 19" x 13" glossy color Ship Photograph with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. The vintage frame is 25.5" x 19.5" Very nice large photo for the ship collector. I have not seen another like this with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background while the ship is underway. It was known by both the Hawaii and Cape Juby names as well as others from what I understand. My pictures are showing reflections off the glass and aren't the best. Looks better in person.

Historical information that I found on triangminicships com:
Cape Juby was one of four sister ships built for States Steamship Co by Newport News Shipbuilding & Drydock Co in 1962 to the C4-S-1u design as the Hawaii (MARAD Hull No 97). Two additional ships of the same design (C4-S-1u) were built for States Steamship Co in 1962 / 63 by the National Steel & Shipbuilding Co (NASSCO) as M. M. Dant (MARAD Hull No 128) and C. E. Dant (MARAD Hull No 129) respectively.
After various changes of name and ownership in the late 1970's / early 1980's California and C E Dant were traded in to MARAD in 1980 while the remaining four ships were acquired by MARAD in 1986 after United States Lines declared bankruptcy.
C E Dant, California, M M Dant and Hawaii were assigned by MARAD to the Ready Reserve Fleet as Cape John T-AK 5022, Cape Jacob T-AK 5029, Cape Johnson T-AK 5075 and Cape Juby T-AK 5077, collectively known as the Cape 'J' Class, while Oregon was converted to the Training Ship Empire State VI in 1992 and Washington was held for spare parts.
In the early 1990's all four of the Cape 'J' Class ships were fitted with the Modular Cargo Delivery System (MCDS) and "hover only" flight decks, allowing them to conduct limited connected underway replenishment (UNREP) and vertical replenishment (VERTREP) operations.
