Print and Picture Collection
Halftone reproduction of photograph showing the steamship Major Reybold at her wharf in Salem, New Jersey. Built in 1853 in Wilmington, Del., the Reybold was the first iron vessel to see service on the Delaware, plying between Salem and Philadelphia until 1906. During the Civil War she was retained on the river on account of Fort Delaware and was for a long time the only steamboat running below Wilmington, carrying thousands of troops and prisoners to the fort.
