overturned eastland steamer in the chicago river after the eastland disaster

Elevated view of water being forced from the hold of the overturned Eastland steamer in the Chicago River, Chicago, Illinois, August 11, 1915. After divers made the capsized hull water tight, a tugboat named the Favorite pulled up near the Eastland to pump the water out. The Clark Street Bridge is visible in the background.
