In this postcard from the 1920s, the <em>Monhegan</em> is steaming along the coast of Maine. The <em>Monhegan</em> was built in Rockland, Maine, in 1903 to the specifications of Captain I. E. Archibald.
It was his largest steamboat, with a length of 128 feet and a breadth of 26.7 feet. Though the <em>Monhegan</em> was the flagship of his fleet, Archibald sold her in 1906, after which she passed through a number of owners.
The <em>Monhegan</em> brought both passengers and freight to Friendship year round on a regular basis until sea-borne vessels were eclipsed by the automotive business.
