I had a request from Richard Cooper, one of our readers, asking for information on the Canandaigua Lake steamers of the 1800s. He was also looking for a map of their routes and where they docked.
He and I have checked out the back issues of the pre-blog Crooked Lake Review featuring Dick Palmer’s two pieces from 9/1995 and 10/1995. Also a reference to the Robert J. Verhile paperback (can’t put my hands on my copy right now).
We’ve seen the following website materials:
Preston E. Pierce’s “Historical Tour” of the lake
The Arbor Hill description of the Vierhile book
The Hub Pages’ “Tour of Canandaigua Lake & its history”
The USGenNet’s “History of Ontario County” pages 54-60
The sketchy map at dec.ny.gov/outdoor
and The Woodville description at clicktoboat.com
If anyone has further suggestions for Richard could you please pass them along by adding your “Comment” below this post?
Any help will be appreciated.
