Fate: Wrecked 22 April 1938 off The Graves, Boston Harbor, Massachusetts (42.22.26N/70.51.35W)[Calcutta-Boston, with a cargo of exotic animals; 8,000 tons jute, natural rubber, iron, tea, sugar, rice, bolts of silk, tapestries]. Much of the cargo was off-loaded and saved. The City of Salisbury gradually broke completely apart in the ensuing months, and by October had sunk to the bottom. Later the hull was dynamited as a navigation hazard. Sections raised and sold for scrap.
