We’ve recently been sharing some local artifacts and historic images through this blog. Several of them have been ferry-related, including the following: Essex-Charlotte Steam Ferry Brochure; 1954 LCT Ferry Brochure; 1957 Ferry Brochure; and 1958 Vintage Ferry Brochure.
I was surprised and excited to see that last month the Lake Champlain Transportation blog shared a vintage ferry brochure as well–from a year we hadn’t yet seen! I think it’s fascinating to see the changes in style between the different years, and the more we see the more varied the designs are. It’s also wonderful to have all these great mementos of local heritage being preserved on the internet to ensure they are available for people worldwide and for generations to come.
Here’s what LCT had to say along with the images they shared:
A customer from North Carolina mailed us an old LCT ferry schedule from 1966. We provided quite a lot of service even back then!
