A Slightly Tipsy Feature

Thanks to the All About New York State group for featuring the antique Atilt ~ The ‘City of Cincinnati’ At Chautauqua, NY. More than just a look back; it’s a look back at something other than snow….

    Wonderful old image, Sheila! And really interesting info! Congrats on your feature!

  • My mother (& grandparents & great grandparents & great great grandparents…) remembered the Chautauqua steamers well. Even after they ceased operating in 1925, there were smaller tourist boats & such. Now there is a small replica ‘riverboat’ plying the waters of the lake, kind of stern-wheeler in miniature, called the Chautauqua Belle. But these days, speedboats & jetskis make it an obstacle course if you want to canoe or sail (though sailboats are plentiful). Thanks, Laurie.
