Photo of Steamer RESOLUTE named in 1895 is from S& D Reflector September 1966.

This Steamer was bought by the Jutte family in 1895 and given the name of RESOLUTE, she was subsequently sold to the Combine in 1903 and brought to Pittsburgh where she was put into the boneyard at Elizabeth.  JW writes that during March 1906 this boat was dismantled, meaning reusable and saleable items were removed from her.  At some time after March 1906 she was taken to Pittsburgh where she was used as a wharf boat, as shown in the photos below.  Prior to October 31, 1913 she was moved back to Elizabeth, as on this date she was intentionally destroyed by fire.

This postcard view of Pittsburgh is dated 1908.  The Wharfboat RESOLUTE is the boat on the right.    Closer view of Wharfboat RESOLUTE
