This undated image provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park shows the iron and wood steamship City of Chester. In 1888, on a trip from the San Francisco bay to Eureka, the Chester was split in two by a ship more than twice its size, killing 16 people and becoming the bay's second-worst maritime disaster. Now, more than a century later, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration team has found the shipwreck. The team came upon the wreckage in 217 feet of water just inside the Golden Gate while it was charting shipping channels.
