The steam screw tugboat IVANHOE, named after the title character in Sir Walter Scott's novel, was typical in design and arrangement of coastal towboat for this era. Built in Brooklyn, in 1881 for George W. Pride and Co. of Philadelphia, she had principal dimensions of 88 feet LOA x 20.5 feet beam, and a draft of 9.9 feet, IVANHOE worked primarily between New York and Philadelphia as a towboat. In addition to this painting, the Mariner's Museum in Newport News, Virginia has a sketch of the IVANHOE dated 1886.
