This side-wheel steamship was built in East Boston in 1866 and is seen here cruising with passengers on deck and flying the American flag. Its hull and engine dimensions are given in the caption. This print was likely commissioned by the builders. Little can be found on the steamer's service, but a manuscript journal of the USS Shamokin currently offered by the William Reese Company describes La Oriental's loss in heavy seas on 24 September 1866, apparently off the coast of South America. None in OCLC.
