Schooner Days


"Schooner Days was a newspaper column which ran Saturdays in the Telegram for more than a quarter of a century beginning in 1931. In it, C.H.J. Snider described in vivid detail the lake shipping scene of the late nineteenth century, touching on both sail and steam, and drawing on experience gained from his own years of service aboard such sailing vessels as the ALBACORE and the famous STUART H. DUNN. Many accounts draw on the memories of a wide range of correspondents from around the Lakes.
