Mothers walk to the steamboat landing with their young children and baby carriages. In 1894, the Association reported admitting 158, 890 adults and children for the summer. In response to the increase of visitors, the manager's report reads: "Two wharves on the Delaware have been used regularly for embarking passengers, one at Otis Street and the other near Pine Street. Early morning trips are made from Otis Street, the return trips being made the latter part of the afternoon."
