Minnesota (liner)
A number of vessels famed in Northwest marine history ended their careers by the scrapper's torch in 1923. The giant cargo -passenger liner Minnesota, still largest merchant vessel ever built in the United States, was sold late in November to German shipbreakers, who towed her across the Atlantic for dismantling.
