The SS Watertown was an oil tanker which had a tragic accident occur.  Two
men were cleaning an empty cargo hold when they were both overcome with
gas fumes and died, while steaming toward the Panama Canal.  The sailors
were buried at sea December 4, 1924.  Beginning the next day, crewmen
reported seeing the faces of the men in the water.  When the SS Watertown
arrived in New Orleans, the captain reported the incident to the company.  It
was suggested he photograph the faces should they re-appear on the next
voyage.  Captain Tracy took six photographs and then locked the camera in
the ship's safe.  Upon return, one of the photographs recorded the faces of
James Courtney and Michael Meehan.  The men's faces were not seen again
after the crew was changed...
