Scope and content
A marine scene depicting the passenger steamship JOHN MUNN, a stern wheeler of shallow, flat bottom construction having a central paddle wheel enclosed by a paddle box located in the stern of the vessel. Abaft of the wheel are two funnels blowing steam exhaust. Foreward to the wheel is a multi-sided structure with openings and a conical roof with a ball finial. To the left of the structure, a white flag with a red border flies from the single mast, likely identifying the company owning the vessel, in this case, the People's Line of Steamers. A white ensign with a St. George's cross flies from the bow. Numerous figures are on the deck. At the right a landmass can be seen in the distance.
