Title

Small Steam-powered Boat at the Shore

Description

A small steam-powered boat is at the shore near some large wooded bluffs. The pipe-smoking captain holds the wheel and looks at the photographer. As personal watercraft on the Rock River, steamboats were not common at the time. This photograph may have been taken south of Rockford by the Byron bluffs on the Rock River.
