Description:
Stereoview of Montreal showing the Allan Line's CALIFORNIAN being loaded with grain by one of the harbour's floating elevators. A group of idlers watching the activity from the pier, looking in part, through the dredge moored to the right of the image. The barge being unloaded appears to be named NED _OTT__
Notes:
This is NOT the CALIFORNIAN which is famous for her role in the events surrounding the sinking of the TITANTIC. That vessel was launched in 1901. This stereoview is copyrighted 1900 and shows the former STATE OF CALIFORNIA, renamed CALIFORNIAN (1898) and COAMO (1901) and scrapped in 1925.
