AP 157/USAT T-AP157 General C. C. Ballou - Army Troop Transport

Though technically not an Amphibious Ship, I bought a small collection of pictures on Ebay in April 2006, and thought they were interesting, so I added them... Images are from "Magic Carpet" trip home to New York. 

See picture on link 11 that shows a November 6 arrival date.  This would have to be 1945...so my GUESS is that images were taken October-November 1945.
