Golden Age (Schooner), U85785, aground, 2 Jun 1884

Full Text

The schr. GOLDEN AGE got aground in the west draw of the Adams St. bridge at Chicago Thursday afternoon. Five tugs pulled at her constantly for 2:30 hours, but it required 2 additional boats to move the monster. The GOLDEN AGE's draught forward was only 15'6", while Chicago is supposed to have the draw bridges dredged to a depth of at least 16 ft.
