    Thanks again for the help, I read "the bowery is leaving tomorrow" and it is a film Im watching called "call the wild" It takes place in seattle 1897 and I thought it was a ship they were talking about, can you help?

    Do you mean Call of The Wild by Jack London? The Bowery was the steamer to Alaska.
