8" x 10", with imprint of D.F. Barry, Photographer, Bismarck and Standing Rock, D.T. Tied to makeshift wharf surrounded by civilians and military personnel, Rosebud delivers a cargo of supplies and passengers. The detailed photograph reveals the lower deck filled to the rafters with firewood with the upper deck covered in spare wagon wheels. The pilot or captain stands in the wheelhouse while passengers loiter on the second deck gazing back at the camera. Note the two uniformed soldiers sporting the white canvas M88 summer helmet. Rosebud was built in California, Pa., in 1877 and was a principal contract vessel on the Missouri River route making over 50 trips to Fort Benton, Mont., during the 1880s. She was equipped with electricity in 1882 and twice sank in shallow water, in 1882 and 1886. In 1887 Rosebud operated with a mixed Indian crew due to a strike. After 1889 she operated on the lower Missouri and sank on a submerged piling at Bismarck, S.D., on June 16, 1896.
