This debossed copper sign belonged to A.S. Dautrick, a steamship man for the Alaska Coast Company and the Alaska Steamship Company. One of the vessels he booked was the S.S. Dolphin, which for a time operated the Southern Alaska route to and from Seattle. His wife rode the ship at least once, in 1903. The S.S. Dolphin sailed from Seattle every 12 days. A first class ticket was around $20 in 1917, or about $500 today.
