The Paddlewheel Queen - the early years

  • Print

The iconic Winnipeg cruise ship took its last voyage down the Red River Sunday. Here is a look back at the early years.

From the August 1st edition of the Winnipeg Free Press: Replica of a 19th century stern-wheeler strated regular cruises on the Red River Wednesday. The boat leaves its home dock near Nairn Avenue, in Elmwood, makes a trip to a point just past Middlechurch and returns in three hours. Tentative schedule calls for three trips on weekdays, four trips Saturdays and Sundays. There is a band on board for the last trip each day, at 10 p.m.; recorded music (via stereo) on other trips.
