February, 1955 - Although 1,350 Toronto shareholders lost nearly $5000 during her 1954 season's operation, they are returning the CAYUGA to service again this year, convinced that she will pay her way. Condemned to the scrap heap, a group of citizens rescued her in 1953, and put her in condition to sail during part of last season. She carried 194,778 passengers between Toronto, Niagara on the Lake and Queenston in 1954, and in all has carried over 14 million passengers without serious mishap since she was put into service in 1907.
