Description
Fading photograph of the North Shore Navigation Company steamboat KATHLEEN (renamed CITY OF LONDON in 1893) with a wharf piled with lumber in the background. A variety of the crew pose for the camera, possibly alongside the owners. The engineers stand at the opening on the main deck. The captain is probably the uniformed figure on top of the pilot house. There are more women than were usually found working on board ship in that period.
Notes
KATHLEEN was launched in Kingston in 1888, and rebuilt in Deseronto in 1891 before being sold to the North Shore Navigation Company on Georgian Bay. In 1893 she was renamed CITY OF LONDON. In 1899 she was moved back to the Saint Lawrence River.

Fanjoy is known to have operated in Alliston, 1890-96.
