This stereograph features a whaleback freighter docked at a group of grain elevators on the edge of the water. Men are standing along the top of the freighter and large wooden ladders are propped from the freighter to the side of the grain elevators. The publisher's name is printed at each end of the images and the title of the images and the copyright are printed along the bottom right edge. The back of the stereograph provides a history on grain cargo and the whaleback freighter.
