Today marks the 96th anniversary of the arrival of the vessel, Meteor, at the Creque Marine Railway.
Sailing over one hundred miles, Captain Prince brought the schooner to Hassel Island to utilize its maritime facilities.
As she has hoisted up the ramp, her dimensions were quickly recorded, 75 feet by 25 feet.
Today, those pencil-written notes and rare photographs are the only evidence to her size and beauty.
Without them, her history would have been lost forever.
Their fortitude will serve to keep the railway’s history alive for many generations.
