Wreck of the CANADIANA
1910 built excursion boat that ran between Buffalo, New York and Crystal Beach, Ontario. Sailed this route from launch until 1960. From there, she was passed among several owners and several ports until reaching Port Colbourne, Ontario. There she sat for many years, waiting restoration efforts. Eventually, the superstructure was stripped off and the badly deteriorated hull was broken up in 2004. An effort to make the Canadiana into a museum in Buffalo failed when it ran into opposition from that city's daily newspaper. Parts of the Canadiana were salvaged for later display. The Canadiana, along with the Bob-Lo Steamers Columbia and Ste Claire, were designed by maritime engineer Frank Kirby.
