Postcards of the Week. Steamship “Columbian” and the Louisville ferry “Yennek.”


A postcard of the steamship “Columbian” in the Lachine Rapids.  The “Columbian” was constructed in Chester, Pennsylvannia in 1892.  It became the “Brockville” in 1905 and the “Rapids Queen” in 1909.  This image dates pre 1905.



The ferry “Yennek” connecting Louisville, New York with Canada.  The postcard dates 1928.


This is just a very small selection of the images of river vessels in the archives of the Cornwall Community Museum.
