Mississippi Steamboat The City of Memphis, 1860 Messenger BagPosted By David Paul on at Dreamgifts
Smoke billows from the two stacks and there are passengers on the foredeck. A cart laden with goods drawn by horse approaches the dock. The City of Memphis was built in 1857 and remained in service until an accident in 1866 when the boilers exploded with the loss of 11 lives.
Samuel L Clemens (better known as Mark Twain) served as a pilot on the The City of Memphis in the spring of 1860.
