Fish Commisioners' Steamer Albatross -- July 5, 2019

San Francisco Call, 08-May-1896
This drawing is from the 08-May-1896 San Francisco Call. William A Coulter did many maritime drawings for the newspaper.

The United States Fish Commissioners' steamer Albatross is preparing for another cruise in the Bering Sea.  She will be gone some time, and beds that were not fully examined last year will be thoroughly explored this season. The Albatross made a pretty picture yesterday as she lay in the stream. As she was sketched yesterday a scow-schooner was approaching her with a load of coal, as was one of the steamer's boats.  In the distance was the monitor Comanche, and away in the distance a small schooner.
