The enclosed promenade may be devoid of deck chairs and passengers and need painted and swept, but otherwise it is very similar to its original appearance. Since it was enclosed and heated, this would be an excellent place to relax and enjoy the evening during the winter months or parts of the voyage through the chilly North Atlantic.

If you'd like to learn more about Philadelphia's lost ship the SS United States, it is a featured chapter in the new Abandoned America book Abandoned America: Dismantling the Dream, available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and many other online booksellers across the globe. Signed copies are available here. Photographs and unattributed text by Matthew Christopher.
