Photo of the Week
April 5, 2009 

On January 11, 2009, I posted for my photo of the week the aftermath of the sinking of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company's steamer Newport at the Pacific Mail Steamship's wharf in Balboa harbor.   That photo was part of a rather large collection of photos and post cards.  I have since been fortunate to negotiate the purchase of the entire collection.  While categorizing the photos, I found the photo featured as this week's photo.  The photo was evidently taken the same day as my previous post from January and probably the same photographer.  This is a side view of the sunken ship showing the large crane laying across the forward section of the ship.  You can see the damage to the wharf when it collapsed.  I scanned the photo in at a high resolution that I unfortunately cannot post on the web because of size.  I was able to read the name Newport on the bow and also there is a sign on one of the building reading, Pacific Mail Steamship Co.
