      I have several news articles, some old pictures and a copy of the original wreck report. I will email you some of that shortly. Most of it you can get from the internet by searching “S S Bertha” “Steamer Bertha” or “Steam Ship Bertha”. The Shelikof and bays on either side are littered with wrecks. You would be amazed at the interesting history that has been ground up and deposited in the bedrock cracks under the gravel on the beaches where you are catching fish. The Bertha was a classic. You could write a book.
