05/01/09 102 W, 1 I - + 13 - 16 Elizabeth City Steam Engine

For our third and last steam engine of the week, here's Elizabeth City's old steamer Inez, a 1902 Silsby named for Chief G. S. Bell's oldest daughter. The steamer was rebuilt that year by Silsby, and was originally a 1873 Silsby that previously served San Antonio, TX. It was acquired by Elizabeth City in 1888. Inez was still on the roster in 1931, towed by motor vehicle. It's presently displayed at the Museum of the Albemarle, where it was photographed on Thursday. That place is pretty cool.
