The Dave Thomson Collection is the largest area of the Steamboats.com online museum, with approximately a thousand unique images. Dave Thomson is a dedicated collector and graphic artist, as well as one of the leading authorities on steamboats in movies.

If you want to start your own collection, you can usually buy photos of steamboats through eBay.com. They are not making many hundred year old black and white photographs, so they are a great collector's item! These images in these exhibits come from a private collection, and we ask that you contact us* before using them for commercial purposes.
