File Unit 01.  Marine Engine - 13-1/2x23x40/30 inch, 1900-1916

Extent: 17 EA (oversized ink on linen drawings).
Physical Description: 17 oversize ink on linen drawings

Scope and Content Note

17 drawings of a 13-1/2 x23 x 40 / 30 inch Marine Engine. All of these drawings were used by and have drawing numbers assigned by Main Street Iron Works and it's predecessor organization, Fulton Iron Works. Among the vessels referenced in these drawings are the steamers OLYMPIC, NORWOOD, CHEHALIS, SHASTA, YOSEMITE, and SAGINAW, as well as other unnamed vessel identified by job numbers.
OLYMPIC (built 1901; steam schooner), built at the G.H. Hitchings yard in Hoquiam, Washington, in 1901. OLYMPIC displaced 688 tons.
NORWOOD (built 1904; steam schooner), built for Sudden and Christensen in 1904 at the Hall Brothers Shipbuilding in Winslow, Washington. NORWOOD was scrapped in 1933.
CHEHALIS (built 1901; passenger/cargo vessel), built at the Bendixen yard in Fairhaven, California in 1901 (possibly by H.D. Bendixen before his retirement), for Sudden & Christensen. The vessel was scrapped in 1938.
SHASTA (built 1903; cargo vessel), built by the Matthews Ship Building Company in Hoquiam, Washington, for the E.K. Wood Company, San Francisco. SHASTA was 205 feet in overall length and had one Scotch marine boiler. This vessel should not be confused with another of the same name, SHASTA (built 1908), by the same yard and for the same client, which was wrecked off of Alameda in 1937.
YOSEMITE (built 1906; steam schooner), built at the Bendixen yard in Fairhaven, California in 1906, for the Yosemite Steamship Company. YOSEMITE was wrecked off Point Reyes in 1926.
SAGINAW (built 1908; steam schooner), built by the Matthews Ship Building Company, in Hoquiam, Washington, for the Hart-Wood Lumber company of San Francisco. SAGINAW was 205 feet and had two Scotch marine boilers.
Arrangement Note: Each plan has a three-part item number inscribed on the lower-left verso of the drawing in ink, presumably assigned by the Main Street Iron Works file department.
