New York Harbour Steamship Whitehall Leaving Port A Summers Day In 1904
Finn Trygvason Klingenberg
Here is a gorgeous photo of the steamship Whitehall leaving port a summers day in 1903/4. Whitehall Tonnage: 1088, Net tonnage: 811, Length: 196 feet, Breadth: 37, 4 feet, Depth: 14, 1 foot, Service: ferry, Crew: 7, Indicated Horsepower: 540, When Built: 1890, were Built in New Burgh N.Y., Home port: New York.
It seems that the accommodation for women is on the left side of the boat, and gentlemen recede on the right.
On the building we can see in the background there is a sign with Hamilton Ferry, written on it.
The photo was taken by an engineer called Finn Trygvason Klingenberg, born in 1877, died in 1960.
We have the original negative photo, so if you want a large picture, poster size, that would be possible.
