Photograph of side wheel steamer Orziba near a dock or harbor, ca.1885. At center, a large ship is seen sitting on the water near a large crowd of people to the right. The ship has two distinct lower levels beneath its populated upper deck. Metal guardrails and columns mark each level. A large pole between two attached life rings supports a large American flag from the stern of the ship. To the left, a semicircular metal casing protects the large paddle wheel. The actual wheel can be seen below the upper, metal casing. Near the center of the ship extending to the bow, two large masts and various ropes are visible. At the top of each mast, a long string supporting several national flags is visible extending to the side of the ship. Between the two masts, a small smokestack can be seen. To the right of the ship, a large group of people stand adjacent to a small building. In the background, three poles supporting various wires can be seen. In the extreme background to the left, additional ships are seen.; Caption on the back of the photoprint reads: "Side wheel steamer Orizaba, sister to Ancon (CHS-8283. Image shows the Ancon with several ships surrounding it), of Pacific Coast Steamship Company, later the Pacific Mail Transportation Company."
