Period photographs at the Satellite Inn across the highway from the wreck site show various perspectives of the Amboy wreckage. Taken in what appears to be the 1920s or 1930s, the photographs show a section of the vessel which is identical in location to the beached keelson section. The photograph shows the keelson and what appears to be a major portion of the port side. Another view shows the Amboy's unconnected bow section, which is approximately 30 feet in length, just to the north of the keelson section. These photographs indicate that the Amboy was thrown upon the beach and that the only remaining portion of the vessel present today is the 74-foot section of heavily eroded keelson.
