She is sometimes labeled as the most honored ship ever used in the United States Navy. The caption writes, "More than 25,000 horsepower will drive this propeller for the Enterprise, launched in October. Cast at Cramp-Morris in Philadelphia (subsidiary of Baldwin Locomotive), it was polished at Newport News. Total cost, about $8,000."
