In this group portrait of workers at the construction site of a new sternwheeler, we can identify the M. F. Henderson and the No Wonder moored behind it. As both ships are part of the Shaver fleet, we can safely assume the new craft was being built by the Shaver Company, which still operates today, headquartered in Portland. The ship under construction may be the Dixon or the Wanna, which were built by the Shaver Company in 1906.
