File:Steamer Oregon - 1900.jpg

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



"The Steamer Oregon", from brochure Seattle and the Orient (1900). At the time, the ship was about to begin a trading on a route to Cape Nome, northern Alaska.

There were several steamers in that era known as the Oregon, including one owned by Cunard; I don't know anything more about the history of this particular ship.

Bowen and published by The Times Printing Company (that is, the Seattle Times). Scanned at 300 dpi; images cleaned up using Picture Publisher's "remove pattern" feature.
