The members of the Panama Canal Trip, leaving on the United Fruit Company's steamship "Almirante" from New York, assembled on board shortly before noon on January 17, 1912, and were speeded on their journey by many regretful friends. Leaving the pier about one p.m., the ship made its way down the bay to the open ocean amid ice floes, slowly leaving behind the freezing weather of New York City.
