A black and white photograph of a steamboat identified as the "Selkirk" on the Columbia River above Wenatchee. The Selkirk was built in Wenatchee in 1899 and was owned by the Columbia & Okanogan Steamboat Co. She was wrecked at Rock Island Rapids in 1906. In the photograph we see her near a bend in the river. On the opposite shore is a low riverbank which quickly gives way to abruptly steep mountains, sparsely treed with conifers. Billowing clouds of smoke emerge from the ship's smokestack, but the reflection in the water and what looks like a line from ship to water on the right of the photo suggests that she is moored, or at least moving slowly.Several male figures are visible on upper and lower decks. It looks as though there is a cabin on the far bank.
