Description

Ortman motion picture film and postcard collection, 1966-1972, (SAFR 23855, P10-004) is comprised of a Matson Lines motion picture film titled "South Seas Cruise Adventure" and a postcard of the Pacific Far East Line steamship MARIPOSA (built 1953; passenger vessel).

Background
MARIPOSA (built 1953; passenger vessel) was built by Bethlehem Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts, as PINE TREE MARINER. In 1955, the Oceanic Steamship Company (a subsidiary of Matson Navigation Company) purchased the vessel and converted her to a passenger vessel. She was christened MARIPOSA in 1956. In 1970, Matson sold the vessel to the Pacific Far East Line, Inc. Source: Stindt, Fred A. Matson's Century of Ships. Kelseyville, CA: F.A. Stindt, 1991, c1982.
