Description

Schooner-rigged canal boat off the mouth of Otter Creek. Boats of this type were numerous during the latter half of the 19th century and many a steamboatman got his early training on these schooners. Capt. George Rushlow, for many years general manager of the Champlain Transportation Co's fleet on Lake Champlain and Lake George, got his captain's title as master of the Canal schooner "Mike." This picture from guide book of 1888.
