Steamer Portland

Steamer Portland
Photograph of Steamer "Portland" from the Boston Sunday Herald of March 5, 1967. Caption: "This was probably the last picture made of the steamship, Portland, which sank Nov. 27, 1898. Les Jones wasn't around at this time, but while covering the busy waterfront he was allowed to copy this rare photograph. The photograph is not reversed--the name over the sidewheels is correct, but the ensign has letters sewn on one side only."
