Photograph of a steamboat in New Orleans, Louisiana, [s.d.]. A view of a large steamboat shows a deck, which seems to be the cargo area, and a three-level area can be seen above it. People are visible on the deck while a small platform is attached to the side of the boat; men with large bags on their shoulders are visible on it. The sailing vessel has several masts and pipes, which are all supported by a system of ropes attached to each of them.; Water is visible behind the steamboat and additional ships next to what appears to be a harbor (dock?) can be seen in the far background.
