LOT 104

Antique Riverboat Photo SS Brown Mississippi River



Estimate: $40 - $60
Realized: $90

Vintage photo, depicting cargo being unloaded from a docked steamboat. The boat is the S.S. Brown, which ran between Memphis and Vicksburg from 1906 to 1909. It was built in Pittsburgh, which means this picture could have been taken on it's maiden voyage to Memphis on the Ohio River. But given the cargo activity, it's more likely that it's docked somewhere on the Mississippi. The photo measures 9" x 11". It's framed and in excellent condition.
