Steamboat "City of Hawkinsville of Tampa" - Branford, Florida.
Twin stacks of Thetis in background.
The City of Hawkinsville was 140 ft. long by 30 ft. wide steamship built in 1886 by the Hawkinsville (Georgia) Deepwater Boat Lines. In 1900, it was sold to the Gulf Transportation of Tampa. It was used primarily to haul timber on the Suwannee River. But it became obsolete with the rise of railroads, and in 1922 it was abandoned in the middle of the Suwannee River. The wreck site has since been designated as a Florida Underwater Archaeological Preserve.
