White Collar Line's sternwheeler "Bailey Gatzert", 1926
Picture is a photograph of a picture of the White Collar Line's sternwheeler "Bailey Gatzert", which was originally built in 1890 at Ballard, Washington and rebuilt in 1907 to be the finest, most elegant steamer in the Pacific Northwest. It made its reputation on the Columbia River in the early 1900's for The Dalles, Portland and Astoria Navigation Company. The second ship was abandoned in 1926. For further information, see "Stern-wheelers up Columbia: A Century of Steamboating in the Oregon Country" by Randall V. Mills, and "Steamboat Days on the Rivers", published by the Oregon Historical Society.
