A group photo was taken at the Cambell & Co. warehouse platform. F.H. Bahr was the photographer.

On the trip, a fire was seen on Ward's Island in the East River, New York, was seen. Many on board were Hoboken Volunteer Firemen and one went ashore to offer help. It was not needed as the fire was the intentional destruction of old contagious disease hospitals to make room for new ones.
