Steamboat S.S. Brown

S.S. Brown was built in 1906 in Pittsburgh and taken to Memphis the same year and operated only in the south after that, and was renamed in 1909, according to Way's Packet Directory (p.407-408), so these must be from her maiden voyage from Pittsburgh to Memphis. Later was converted to the excursion boat Majestic.
