On Saturday night Telstar Logistics hosted a wonderful celebration aboard the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien which is docked at Pier 45 in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. The event was in honor of the 40th Birthday of Telstar Logistics head operative Todd Lappin and the birth of Todd and Nicole’s daughter Miel.
The S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien is a beautiful World War II Liberty Ship that was involved with the D-Day invasion at Normandy, France, bringing supplies and troops to the battle (it is currently the only ship left of the original 6,939 ship D-Day armada). In 1979 the Jeremiah O’Brien was restored by National Liberty Ship Memorial and moved to San Francisco, where it still makes the occasional voyage out to sea. Areas of the ship were used in scenes that were shot for the 1997 film Titanic.
Of course if I’m invited to a fantastic party on a WWII Liberty Ship, then I’m bringing my camera, so here are a bunch of photos I shot of the party. I could have spent days just shooting the amazing engine room.
