eastland disaster raising of the steamer tugboat at its bow two barges on port side

Elevated view of the raising of the Eastland, a steamer that overturned in the Chicago River in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. A tugboat is at its bow, and two barges are on the port side, attempting to right the steamer. A line of men is standing on the roof of a building behind the steamer. It appears that a lifeboat is falling of the top deck of the Eastland.
