To Eastern Steamship Lines.

The Bahama Star (9,070 grt, 466 ft. long) was originally built as the Borinquen for Porto Rico Line.
She was rebuilt by Arosa Line in 1954 and renamed Arosa Star for a transatlantic service.
Bought by Eastern Shipping Corporation (Eastern Steamship Lines) in 1959
she sailed as the Bahama Star between Miami and Nassau during most of the 1960s until sold to
Western Steamship Co. to become the La Jenelle. She was wrecked in 1970.


The California Wreck Divers website has a page on the La Janelle (!) detailing the final fate of the liner.


You may use my images on another website.
Then please credit them as being from the collection of Björn Larsson,
and preferably provide a link to my Introduction page.
Thank you!
