                                      Date:  1888

                                      Resource type:   color slides

                                      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.

                                            The old two-stacker "Vermont" going North on an afternoon in 1893. This beautiful shot was made by Harvey Ingham, an artist and an excellent photographer of Vergennes. It is taken looking West off Diamond Island, the "Vermont" skirting the base of Split Rock Mountain heading for Essex, her next stop. Leaving Westport about 3pm, she would reach this spot about 3:30.
