                      Title:   Reindeer

                      Resource type:   color slides

                      The Str. Reindeer, built at St. Albans in 1882 (181' x 27' x 9'), was the largest to navigate Otter Creek. This picture shows her at Vergennes in her trimmer and more youthful days, before the life of an Excursion boat made her sag in the middle. In the gay Nineties, it was a common sigh to see her staggering up and down the lake, her decks weighed down with crowds who often flocked to one side or the other giving her a careening look, her guards on one side almost at the water's edge and the paddlewheel on the opposite side fanning the air. She would then stop until the crew could restore equilibrium among passengers and boat. She sank at her dock in Burlington in 1902 from causes not known.
