Perhaps Norgaard had these photographs due to the vessel's connection to Alaska. W.H. DIMOND was a barkentine of 390 tons and was built by Turner at San Francisco for J. D. Spreckels for the Island trade. It was later transferred to the Oceanic Steamship Co. She was sold out of the trade in 1905, and was converted to a schooner by the Alaska Codfish Co. She was wrecked in February 1914, on Bird Island, Alaska. (Information from John Lyman, Pacific Coast Built Sailers, 1850-1905, The Marine Digest. Sept. 13, 1941, p.2).
