The hull of the once fine steamer REINDEER is in the boneyard near Gilmore's shipyard at Toledo. When she first came out she did a good business. She was converted into a tow-barge and became the property of Peter, the lumber merchant. She finally lost her usefulness and was taken to the point named.
