|Title||Coastal steamship ""Corona, "" ca. 1900s |
|Photographer||McCurdy, James G. |
|Date||ca. 1900s |
|Caption||Between 1897 and 1909, the steamship "Corona" usually sailed in the coastal trade between California and Puget Sound. While in Alaska in 1898, the "Corona" ran aground on rocks off Lewis Island. The cargo was ruined but no lives were lost. During repairs to the vessel, workers discovered a huge blackfish tightly wedged in the hole in the ship's hull. They determined that this had kept the "Corona" from sinking immediately with great loss of life.|
This photo, taken by James G. McCurdy, shows the steamship ""Corona"" entering port with a tugboat, probably at Port Townsend, Washington.
