This postcard sent to Annie Griffin in 1908 displays a view of the Steamship Alberta. What's with her and boat postcards? The boat was part of Canadian Pacific Railway Great Lakes fleet, built in Scotland in 1883, it sailed the upper lakes carrying freight and passengers on Lake Huron and Superior till being converted to freight only in 1916. The boat was sold off in 1946, by then thoroughly obsolete, I would think.
Trainweb.org has the whole story of Canadian Pacific's steamships here.
More importantly the Annie Griffins story continues, no news on the Willis situation but what to do with tomato pickles?
