The four photos above are from an article titled "Quadruple Discovery" from the March 1970 issue of S&D Reflector.  The photo below is from the collection of Tim Theisen and clearly has the number 5 etched onto it, perhaps it is a fifth photo from this set.

Of note is that when this boat first launched in 1900 her master was R. M. Boyd of Elizabeth, PA, a relative of the wife of JW Lynch.
