We've seen this group of ships frozen in the ice in this photo, but they were misidentified. This view from the other side verifies the correction sent in by an alert reader.
This is from January, 1907. The ships are nestled west of Stanley Rock, at Koberg Beach. Hopefully they had a little shelter from the bitter winds.

I see another small boat behind the Capital City......looks like it was pretty cold...
The Capital City was originally the Dalton, which was born by Hall Brothers in 1898 on Bainbridge Island. By the time this photo was taken it was owned by Dalles, Portland and Astoria Navigation, which acquired it in 1900. It was broke up in 1919.
The Joseph Kellogg was a boat built in Portland, also owner Charles K. Kellogg. It was built in 1881 and then rebuilt in 1900. Sister boat was the Lot Whitcomb.

When Reader Mike made the comment in the previous photo about the Joseph Kellogg, I looked up the man by that name. He laid out the town of Lake Oswego, which was just a minor part of what he did during his life time.
There was a ship captain who built a huge beautiful home, next to where my husband grew up. I thought it might be Captain Kellogg.
The home is now gone and filled with housing developments.
It is fun and interesting when readers go back to previous photos and add comments. It leads to researching more history!!
Like...the winter of 1906-07.

I would guess west of Stanley Rock rather than east.

Was just going to post about the location but Kenn beat me to it. Here is a picture of Stanley Rock from Koberg beach.

Thanks, it makes much more sense for them to be west of the rock and out of the east wind. That picture proves it. I'll fix the text.

Charlott, the Lot Whitcomb was not the sister ship of the Joseph Kellogg. The Lot Whitcomb was built during the Civil War and went out of service in 1868, at least a decade before the Joseph Kellogg was built.
