Kaslo, British Columbia

On our visit to Kaslo, B.C. on Kootenay Lake, we stopped by to visit the Moyie an authentic paddlewheel steamer in use on the lake until 1957.  It has been restored by the local historical society.  In the early days there were no roads in the area.  The Moyie carried passengers and freight.  The Moyie also was used as a tug to move barges carrying railroad cars.  It was in service for almost 60 years.  Freight was carried on the lower deck.  The upper deck was very luxurious for the time including padded seats, state rooms, dinning room, a lounge with bar and toilets.
