Paddlewheel Ruins in Manitoba

I hope explorers in the area have gotten out there to photograph them before they are demolished, too far gone, vandalized or repurposed and sold as scrap.

The Paddlewheel Queen once adorned every tourist brochure promoting Winnipeg and half the postcards — the other half featured the Golden Boy.The sternwheeler with the spinning paddle blades in back — rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river — was the iconic image of Winnipeg.
