Description

The powerful steamboat Monhegan is making its way through the ice as it approached the Jameson & Wotton Wharf in the dead of winter. Steamboats provided a vital connection to Friendship, which is located at the end of an eight-mile long peninsula and had very poor roads connecting it to larger inland communities at that time.
