Newsboy (bark)
The Newsboy, a bark of 588 tons and 700 M capacity, was built by Dickie Bros. at San Francisco in 1882 for J. J. Smith of that port and Santa Cruz, who, it is said, named her Newsboy to commemorate his own start in life. The vessel was later rigged as a barkentine and passed to the Slade Lumber Co., being sold in 1914 to Peruvians and dropping from registry a couple of years later.
