Pearl (Steamboat), U150032, 27 Jul 1893
- Full Text
If the stm. PEARL returns to Buffalo, which she is likely to do, her old friends will hardly know her. She has been painted, according to one who recently saw her, in all colors of the rainbow. She has been given new decks, guards and guard beams, repairs costing in all $6,000 and $7,000. Besides these repairs the World's Fair Transportation Co. paid the Crystal Beach people $9,000 in cash for the boat. If the boat does come back the Crystal Beach Steamboat Co. will not have made such a bad bargain after all.
