Route of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company's Excursion Steamer "T. J. Potter" between Portland and North (Long) Beach; and Map of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company Along the Columbia River, Portland to Celilo Falls

DESCRIPTION: Two rare, unrecorded advertising maps on a single sheet:
1) Route of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company's Excursion Steamer "T. J. Potter" between Portland and North (Long) Beach. Contains an inset drawing of the Steamer T. J. Potter with a domed wheelhouse and flagpole.
2) Map of the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company Along the Columbia River, Portland to Celilo Falls. One half-page on verso.

Undated but ca. 1908 based on a advertisement for the excursion steamer T.J. Potter on the six-hour summer run (every day except Sunday) on the Columbia River between Portland, Oregon and North Beach, Washington promoted as "One of the Most Attractive Beach Resorts on the North Pacific Coast."

The T. J. Potter was a wooden side-wheel paddle steamer owned by the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company. The Potter operated on the Columbia River and Puget Sound between 1888 and 1916, and was considered for a time to be the fastest side-wheel steamer in the Northwest U. S. A. Rebuilt in 1901, the Potter then sported a dome with a flagpole instead of a flat roof. By the 1920's the Potter had been withdrawn from passenger service and was used as a quarter boat for construction crews before she was abandoned near Astoria, Washington.
