River steamer Beaver partially submerged after collision

Photograph of the river steamboat Beaver partially submerged in the Willamette River in Portland on November 24, 1931. To the left of the Beaver is the F. W. Mulkey, a harbor patrol tugboat. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 1 of the Oregon Journal on Tuesday, November 24, 1931, under the headline: “What Happened When ‘Signals Crossed.’ “ The photograph had the following caption: “Steamer Beaver of the Harkins river fleet resting on the beach below the Admiral terminal after she had been rammed by the steamer Admiral Farragut. The Beaver was lying at her dock when the Farragut, heading into the dock, struck the smaller vessel. Her pilot beached the sinking boat.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Ships Crash In River and One Beached.” None of the Beaver’s crew were injured. Also see image Nos. 371N5190 and 371N5192.
