One of the most famous steamboats in Long Island Sound service was the hardy trouper C.H. Northam. Built in 1873 by John Englis & Son of Brooklyn, she was a hard-working and successful boat. By the turn of the century she was the last of the "old-time" steamboats with her boilers "outboard" on her guards. She was retired in 1907. Here she is passing under the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan side in the background.
