James T. Swartzwelder Collection of River Boat Slides

A unique collection of 208 slides, mostly in color, of the river boats of the Monongahela, Allegheny and Ohio rivers from the Pittsburgh photographer. The images show tow boats, sand diggers, coal haulers, recreational boats and stern wheelers. The slides are marked with the name of the boat company, specifications such as horse power and date of photograph. There are several typed pages listing the various boat companies, their vessels, engine power and dates of operation. Most of the images are in Very Good condition with a small percentage showing some fading, discoloration or soiling. The slides are protectively stored and will be shipped in polyethylene archival slide pages in a 3-ring binder. This is a great opportunity for collectors, educational institutions or historians to acquire this collection in one lot. Please email us for price. Serious inquiries only.
