This is a little far afield, but it's a nice image from the Davidson collection. The schooner Oakland was apparently abandoned at sea in March 1916. She ran aground at Manzanita. She was refloated shortly thereafter, taken to Portland, and in 1918 renamed "Mary Hanlon". The Mary Hanlon was lost off the coast of California in 1924.
This schooner had quite a history. Three masted schooner weighing 418 tons built in Oakland for the Humbolt Lumber Co, for $35,000. She ran aground near San Fransisco by a steamer. In 1916 she was owned by Fyfe Lumber Company. She ran aground again. She was refitted in Portland and by her demise as "Mary Hanlon" she was owned by Albion Lumber Co. The day she ended her career she had been loaded with ties by Albion Lumber. There was a 16 man crew aboard, but they were able to escape via life boats.

Maybe even further afield, the Maritime Museum in Astoria is very interesting to anyone who is interested in learning about the "Graveyard of the Pacific." Over 700 ships and 100's of sailors have perished at the mouth of the Columbia River.

Is that Ella Mae Davidson standing on the grounded pre-1918 schooner?
