The steamer <em>Brandon</em> was built in 1902 for the Old Dominion Steamship Company in Virginia, where she served for many years. In 1925 and for a few years thereafter, she served in Maine, going between Portland and Rockland and stopping in Friendship along the way.

Both the <em>Brandon</em> and the steamship business at large were reaching the end of their productive years in the mid 1920s. Over her many years of service, the <em>Brandon</em> flew the flags of three companies and two nations.
