This week it was a postcard featuring another old steam ship that traveled Lake Champlain! Recognize it? It’s the Chateaugay steamer! What can you tell us about it? Have you ever seen it in person? When do you think this postcard dates to?
Here’s what the community had to say:
Dianne Lansing: Before my time 😉
Want to see other old images of the Chateaugay? Check out our archives for the ship here and you can also find some musings and research on the possible fate of the ship. I believe it operated on the lake in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
