Seller: mr.fec (9,497) 100%, Location: Miami, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 192159647526 What a marvelous group of photos! The CITY OF NORFOLK is an OLD BAY LINE ship that operated overnight for many years between Baltimore and Norfolk and this is a marvelous forward view of the port side with a full head of steam; the SOUTHLAND was a double-ended ferry which was operated by what looks to me to be the AKE or ARE Transit Co., that name just above the name of the boat; the New York waterfront view is incredible and at least FOUR paddlewheel steamers are visible, one of those being the CITY of ALBANY and one of the other steamboats is the C. H. NORTRAM, as we can see the name flag flying center right of photo; the last 8 x 10 is of the BROOKLYN BRIDGE looking toward the Manhattan side. I can see two ferry boats on the right, several multi-masted sailing ships and at least four paddlewheel steamers on the left. I am certain that our friends at the numerous D. C., Delaware, Maryland and Virginia Historical Societies, as well as those in New York and the various museums as well as the Hampton Roads region steamboat/steamship buffs and those interested in steamboat operations and histories nationwide will want this rare piece, especially with such a modest min bid and no reserve. We will ship this rare lot as you see it, heavily packaged and with cardboard on either side to protect it from damage, our shipping prowess well known to our multitudes of fine buyers. I know that you can and do understand (COPY?!!) that, as with all photos, negatives, postcards, timetables and paper items that we sell, this rare lot is NON-returnable and NON-refundable, so PLEASE be sure to e-mail any ?? you have PRE-bidding. As a famous and beloved personage would have said, "fascinating," and as Billy Crystal would say, "this great group is gaw-giss, dahing, gaw-giss!" This is a super find for any collector of either Old Bay Line, New York City or Hampton Roads area railroad or steamship items, steamboat memorabilia, information or material or regional historian. There is NO reserve on this lot and a modest minimum bid. Pkg/ship/USPS tracking is $4.95 so BID EARLY AND BID OFTEN! As "Kramer" would say on "Seinfeld," "Oh, mama, this is one great lot of rare STEAMSHIP photos, Jerry!"

Condition: AN INCREDIBLE GROUP, THIS VERY RARE SET is A MARVELOUS FIND FOR THE COLLECTOR OF STEAMBOAT/STEAMSHIP/OLD BAY LINE/HAMPTON ROADS/NEW YORK CITY AREA HISTORIC MEMORABILIA. The Brooklyn Bridge photo has some light red writing on top and bottom and a very small crease upper right; the other N Y has 1 1/4" borderes top and bottom; City of Norfolk has a 1 1/4" bottom border; Southland has 7/8" border at top, 5/8" border at bottom.
