enter image description hereI believe that this unidentified passenger steamship could possibly be from the New England area or the Great Lakes. I have already ruled out this vessel as being the S.S. Boston of the Eastern steamship lines, as well as the S.S. North American. The time frame of the photograph is from 1907-1914. Thank you for any leads in identifying this vessel.

    I tried to find a match to the funnel and house flag in research.mysticseaport.org/item/l011061/l011061-c008, without much luck. Number 47 seemed closest, but not really plausible. Jun 19, 2022 at 19:12

    Anything more that can be said about this photo? Personally, I'm intrigued how its clearly black and white, but there's blue in it.

    According to Wikipedia, The S.S Harvard had a sister ship the S.S Yale which was was built by the Delaware River Iron Shipbuilding and Engine Works in 1906, for service between New York and Boston. This would make sense because the group of photos this came from are of vessels from the Boston and Cape Cod area. Thank you very much for your detective work. I very much appreciate it. I’m not sure how you figured it out though. I had been searching for a few weeks now.

    @Pieter Geerkens: Google Lens is not available on all combinations of OS and browser. I see no such thing with Firefox under AlmaLinux for example.
