General Note:
In the 1950s, Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagaula, Mississippi, began building luxury passenger liners. On September 4, 1958, the S.S. Brasil, at the time the largest ocean liner ever built in the Deep South, was delivered to Moore-McCormack Lines. Ingalls also constructed its sister ship the S.S. Argentina. In August 1972, the S.S. Brasil was purchased and operated by Holland America Lines and renamed Volendam III. The ocean liner passed to many owners until it was scrapped in late 2004. The M.S. Renaissance can be seen in the background. Slide labeled 2d Ship Renaissance Barbados.
