I say. Is that a Liberty Ship?

They few enough items on interet in this slide - so I'm hoping that's a Liberty Ship.

For any youngsters out there, the Liberty Ship was a class of cargo ship built in the United States during World War II. Though British in conception, the design was adapted by the United States for its simple, low-cost construction. Mass-produced on an unprecedented scale, the now iconic Liberty ship came to symbolize U.S. wartime industrial output. Around 2,700 Liberty Ships were produced.

Bonus - Some pedestrians should not be messed with.
