The steamer Juliette posing with crew and passengers somewhere in Penobscot Bay, Maine. The little steamer was built at Bath in 1892 and plied the waters around Maine under the command of Captain Oscar Crockett and later the Eastern Steamboat company. She was sold to Florida interests in 1924 where she became a tender for a sand sucking dredge. In 1925 she  ran aground and sank in the Florida Keys.
