Info: 

DORLEON (aka TITUS, the vessel’s working name during construction), built in 1924 for L.E. Titus, owner of the Olympia Motor Company. The Titus family owns car dealerships to this day. The vessel’s O/N is 224553. Master Carpenter Certificate date is 4/15/25. This latter date is usually close to the launch date, so may be the approximate date of the photo… 
 
This vessel was still in existence as late as 2005, listed under the name of JANE S in the USCG database, out of documentation, and classed, somewhat surprisingly, as a  “commercial fishing vessel”.  Location unknown.
