Steamer CYCLONE at Brownsville, PA

The Steamer CYCLONE was built during 1892 at the Axton Yard located in Brownsville, PA.  This photo is dated 1892 and the CYCLONE looks like a new boat.  David Gratz, a member of the Brownsville Historical Society, confirmed that this photo shows Brownsville and he wrote,  " It appears the picture is viewing down stream. Brownsville wharf in background under the two eastern spans. Mouth of Dunlap Creek under first span. Herbertson foundry just off the end of the bridge. The hill in the background, I believe, is Albany Hill."

The boat is mentioned in JW's Journal as having repair work during October 1902 at the Elizabeth Marine Ways.
