Description:
This image shows people reading newspapers on a wooden deck overlooking basin harbor in Lake Champlain. There are several boats in the harbor. The landscape around the lake looking toward the Adirondacks is forested hills with a large steep outcrop cliff visible near the center of the photograph. This is summer. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-5-1: Basin Harbor is in the town of Ferrisburg. In 1809 two Ferrisburg natives, James & John Winans, who had helped to build Robert Fulton\'s steamboat called the Clermont, came home. There they built the Vermont, the second sucessful steamboat to be used commercially anywhere in the world. That began the long history of steamboating on Lake Champlain, which ended when the Ticonderoga was taken out of service in 1955. Today it can be seen at the Shelburne Museum. The two people shown in left of the view reading the Sunday papers were Stephen & Janet Greene. Their homes were in Brattleboro & Dover, but being great friends of Ralph Nading Hill spent a lot of time over there. It was the much beloved Ralph Nading Hill who masterminded it's salvage and provided much of the funding for moving the old Ti over farm land and the railroad to get the grand old gal to the Museum. I was one a very privileged group that went on Ti's last run.
