Alang, The Killing Field

S.S. Argentina

 

The photos below were taken in February 2004.  They show the Enchanted Isle (New Orleans) in her last days.  It didn't take long after her beaching on December 8, 2003 to be torn this far.  She completely disappeared by August 2004.

Permission was granted to us by Peter Knego of Maritime Matters to insert the photos on the site.  He took these photos himself.  You can see more and be able to order his video about death in Alang at the page, On the Road to Alang.
