Did you ever have a day like this? Anyway, I found this photograph interesting. When I first saw it I was curious how the ship could have possibly ended up on the rocks like this. I did a little research and found that the ship was the S.S. Princess May. The ship belonged to the Canadian Pacific Railway. On August 5, 1910 the vessel hit a reef near Alaska. It became stuck on the reef, and then the tide went out. This left the ship suspended in the air. The passengers were safely unloaded. The ship stayed stuck for over a month, but eventually was repaired, and put back into service.
