|Interior of Houseboat, 1903
There is little in this 1903 photograph to indicate that it is the interior of a houseboat. Doors and windows appear no different than those of most houses in Chicago at the time. The heavy dining room table seems out of place on a boat. But the owner of this boat (Judge Bradwell) sits here in the enclosed portion of his houseboat.
