Old photos of 4 Standard Oil tankers. They were housed for years in an old manufacturing plant here in Menominee, MI. All sailed for Standard Oil from the time of their build in the teens and early 20's. In 1957, the Beaumont Parks was sold to Cleveland Tankers, while the other three were sold to American Oil Co. in 1962. Their new owners eventually sold them off a few years later.
