You know what they say - "You ain't been around if you ain't run aground!" - What's the name of this famous shipwreck from 1910?
ANSWER: The Princess May
And thanks to Curtis Johnson for all the info!
S.S. Princess May on the rocks, Aug. 5, 1910.
The steamship S.S. Princess May, departed Skagway and was proceeding south down Lynn Canal in heavy fog when it ran aground on the rocks near the north end of Sentinel Island. It was high tide and the momentum of the ship forced it well up onto the rocks, with the bow jutting upward at an angle of 23 degrees. This produced a number of dramatic photos that were sold all over the west coast (to the captain’s everlasting shame, we’re sure).
Thanks to the close proximity of Sentinel Island, passengers, crew and valuable cargo were easily evacuated. After blasting rocks, the Princess May was eventually floated free and repaired.
