Freight-Passenger-Commercial Fishing Vessels of Lake Nipigon

As remembered by Adolph King, Rossport, Ontario, 1974

Nipigon Museum Archives

There were several very small steam vessels on Lake Nipigon operated by one or two men.

One, the writer knows, railroaded from Port Arthur, Ontario. It was about 25 feet in length with a small upright fire tube boiler and a very small single high pressure engine.

She was named "Alice" and was operated by one man who traded with the Indians and was also a trapper.
