Prince of Wales visit to St. Catharines. (part)
      "The shipbuilding arch by Mr. Shickluna near his dock, was considered by nearly all to be the best and most handsome arch in town. It was beautiful. Two ship masts 45 feet long, were hoisted and secured in the center by ropes having rope guys running out to different stakes drove in the ground, and all beautifully decorated. In the apex was a large yawl boat; beneath this was a model of the schooner PRINCE OF WALES, recently launched from Mr. Shickluna's shipyard for Messrs. Norris & Neelon."
