    Cotton Packet, Str. Henry Frank

    This is the boat recently shown in the S&D Reflector talking about its record breaking load of 9,226 bales of cotton carried down the Mississippi to NOLA.

    Does anyone have any photos of this boat without the cotton bales? I have searched the web with no luck, finding only 3 photos of it, all of them show it loaded down with cotton. Judging by its dimensions and description, she was quite the vessel. I would love to see a clean photo of her unloaded. What was her final fate?

    Demise of the FRANK

    According to Way's, she burned at Davis Creek Island, 22 miles above New Orleans, on Oct. 2, 1884.
