In the News~

July 17, 1912 [SBMP]: “Beginning today, 75,000 sheep will be transported across the channel on the steam ship Carmel. The sheep come from Santa Cruz Island and will be landed here to be sent by rail to various parts.”

July 20, 1912 [SBMP]: “Wallace Kerrigan and R. D. Armstrong of the Flying A Company, made the trip to Santa Cruz Island yesterday and secured moving pictures of the transportation of the sheep. Photographs were taken illustrating the loading process, also views at the wharf when the sheep left the ship. The steamer Carmel made two round trips yesterday, moving nearly 4,000 sheep from the island to the mainland. It will make as many trips today. According to Kerrigan and Armstrong, they did not get sea sick, although everybody else did, including a fox terrier. It was observed, however, that both ate very heartily shortly after coming ashore.”

July 21, 1912 [SBMP]: “After making five trips across the channel with cargoes of sheep, the steamer Carmel completed its work for the present, after having landed 8031 head. There are still several thousand head of sheep to be transferred from the island, but it may be some weeks before a further roundup is complete.”
