The Tahoe Tavern Pier in Tahoe City was the hub of transportation on the lake in the early 20th century. Here a Lake Tahoe Railway and Transportation Company train sits on the pier while the steamer S.S. Tahoe is tied up alongside it. Several smaller steamers are in the water to the right, including the steamer S.S. Nevada and steamer S.S. Meteor.
