Comments

The wreck of the KATATA near the Klamath River mouth, on the "north beach." Exact date of the photo is unknown. Pencilled label on back of photo reads: Papa, Kate McMillan, Florence Foss, Rivvetts, sailor, Will Taylor, Mr Field and Mr Smith. This was taken Sunday after noon Mr Field took the two large ones. This passage is in the handwriting of Mrs. William T. Bailey: her absence from the photo and her labelling of it and the presence of the shot in the Schoenrock Collection all suggest that she is the photographer. The "large ones" mentioned above are probably #87 and #88, which were still grouped with #86 in the Schoenrock Collection and are also of the KATATA wreck.
