          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.

                      The Str. Water Lily, Capt. Louis Daniels, Master, on her way up Otter Creek. The Water Lily, a small steamer built about 1867, plied between Vergennes and Port Henry, later between Vergennes and Westpot. She left Vergennes in the morning around 8 A.M., making intermediate stops and landing at Westport around 10 A.M. in time to connect with the Str. Vermont going South. She left Westport after the return of the "Vermont" from Ticonderoga, with passengers for Vergennes.
