The front boat in this photo is the SHANANGO NO. 2. The trailing boat is the SHENANGO NO.1. (I have a large actual photo of this scene.)

I thought the trailing vesel was the Shenango No. 2.

This same picture appears in the book Railway Steamships, by Dana Ashdown, see page 153. Dana claims the vessel on the right was the Shenango No. 1. He also gives an explanation of the difference between the two vessels.

The photo is also in the Milwaukee Public Library Marine Collection as noted in Wes Oleszewski's book
