eastland disaster two unidentified men standing on a makeshift dock floating near the eastlands hull

Image of two unidentified men standing on a makeshift dock floating near the hull of the overturned Eastland in the Chicago River in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. A gangplank leads to the dock from the quay, a ladder is leaning against the hull of the steamer, and another ladder is lowered into the water. A diver's helmet is on the dock amidst tangled ropes. One man is holding a spray nozzle while the other pumps liquid out of a container to which the nozzle is connected.
