View of Oswego Harbor
- Media Type:
- Item Type:
- Stereoview of Oswego harbor in the 1870s. At least five two masted schooners can be seen in port, their decks cluttered with a variety of gear. The adjacent wharves are piled wth lumber and what appear to be pipes. In the background on the left side of the image is one of Oswego's grain elevators. The central schooner is the HENRY W. HOAG.
- The HOAG was launched in 1862, re-rigged as a barge in 1880, as a schooner again in 1884, and abandoned by 1906. The photo appears to give the home port as Toledo, which might be useful in providing a more precise date.
