Title

Excursion Steamboat "May Lee"

Description

In 1896, "May Lee" was the second steamboat owned by Theodore C. Largent, who named it after his daughter May and son Lee. The steamboat was cut into two pieces when it proved to be too small to keep up with the demand for passenger travel. A middle section was added, allowing it to carry up to 400 passengers. This photograph shows the added middle section.
