Found in a central Texas antique store this weekend. The photo was taken in late 1947, between World War II and the Korean War. A description is written on the back, but there is no signature or name on it anywhere.

2 Sept 47

The 8th Army ferry "Shija". A converted Jap Destroyer Escort. Very new, and a beauty. This is at Pusán, Korea a few minutes before we sailed. In the left background, the passengers are lined up for their shots. Most of the G Is are going to a rest hotel in Japan for a weeks leave.
Date & Place: in Busan, South Korea
None / Unknown
