The sternwheeler steamboat Altona was built in 1890 and operated on the Willamette River until 1907, when it was transferred to Alaska. Seen here at Oregon City, below the old courthouse. The Altona was owned by The Oregon City Transportation Company, which had the habit of giving their boats names ending in -ona: Latona, Ramona, Altona, Leona, Pomona, Oregona, and Grahamona. (The last was named after the company owners, the Graham family.) There were two docks in Oregon City - the 8th St. Dock and the 4th St. Dock, near the mills.
