A dredging crew, working at the foot of Addison Street, Chicago, found a rusty old boiler, which proved to belong to the steamer Lady Elgin, which collided with the Augusta and sank, in 1860, when 400 of her passengers were drowned.

- Item Type:
- The boiler, if it ever belonged to the LADY, must have been replaced, as both of the boat's boilers are recorded at the wreck site off Winnetka. See Brendon Baillod's excellent site on the LADY ELGIN: http://www.ship-wrecks.net/shipwreck/projects/elgin/
