View of the propeller on the Pejepscot towboat, ca. 1900. "The Portland Company kept track of the vessels it built or equipped by the shop numbers of the company's engines installed in them. Here we see a new propeller with 'Eng. 98' chalked on it. This denotes that the vessel attached was the towboat Pejepscot, built in 1907. This is part of the Portland Company collection including the years 1850-1920, an engineering firm and foundry in Portland, Maine. The collection includes engineering plans of locomotives, fire engines, marine engines, and other items manufactured by the company, photos, specification books, account books, printing plates and other memorabilia.--Fletcher, David H.
