    Perth Amboy evening news. [volume], October 12, 1923, FINAL EDITION, Image 20 Has a photo of this vessel, with caption, "UNCLE SAM’S FLOATING AIRPLANE FIELD U. S. S. Langley, only airplane ship of the Navy. The Langley is not a beauty, but she is the last word in naval efficiency, with storage for a score of planes, elevators to take them up to the landing deck, windbreaks to protect them when they are there, wireless aerials that jut upward, obliquely, from the side instead of from the deck, and slow motion movie cameras to record the flights and check up on errors." See "USS Langley (CV-1/AV-3) was the United States Navy's first aircraft carrier, converted in 1920 from the collier USS Jupiter (Navy Fleet Collier No. 3), and also the US Navy's first turbo-electric-powered ship."
