Abstract

Article chronicling the ill-fated career of the steamship "City of Rockland," a big side-wheeler, that was considered the latest word in seaworthiness, speed, and luxurious accommodations, when she made her maiden voyage from Boston to Rockland on June 18, 1901. Within less than three years, the steamship was in the first of a series of major accidents, culminating on September 3, 1923, when she crashed on a ledge on Dix Island at the mouth of the Kennebec. Although none of one was injured in accident, the vessel was beyond repair and was sold as scrap for $3,100 to a shipyard in Salem.
