The picture shows a view of this Unused U.S.N.S. Bowditch (T-AGS 21) Post Card. This ship was a hydrographic survey ship. The USNS Bowditch (T-AGS-21) was designated “USNS” rather than “USS” because she was operated by a crew of civilian merchant seamen, employed by the Military Sealift Command, rather than sailors of the regular U.S. Navy. She was one of 2 Victory ships converted in 1957/58 for survey work in connection with the Polaris missile submarine program.

Below is some information found about this ship.
