TitleSteamer Bailey Gatzert on excursion trip up Columbia River, landing near Collins Hot Springs, Washington.
DescriptionA tinted photographic postcard. The legend in brown at upper right reads "Steamer Bailey Gatzert on excursion trip up Columbia River, landing near Collins Hot Springs, Washington." All three decks of the ship seem to be packed with people. The steamer is a few feet from the near shore, and a plank has been laid out for a gangway. On the shore at left a man in a cap contemplates the steamer. At right a group of six men and one woman are exploring the bank. The woman wears a long full dress and appears to be wearing a hat with wings. A black-and-white dog lingers near the edge of the water. This bank of the river appears to be mostly covered with flowers or grass. At the far right is a deciduous tree. On the far shore the hills, forested with evergreens, slope steeply down to the river. Near the left edge of the picture is a bare slope with red-tinted dirt. It looks as though a road or railway line runs along this far bank. The Bailey Gatzert, named after the first Jewish mayor of Seattle, was built in 1890 and used in the excursion trade along the Columbia River from 1892-1895. She was claimed to be the fastest ship on the water. By 1930 she was no longer in service.
