Default Steamships of old

Does anyone have any photos of the steamship era on Winnipesaukee? I believe it was back in the 1800s when these beautiful ships roamed the lake. I remember when I was younger seeing photos not just of the mount Washington but other “working” vessels used to transport supplies and complete other tasks on the lake. I wonder what the names of these steamships were and where I could see them.

Attached is a pdf of a page from "Three Centuries on Winnipesaukee" one of my favorite reads.

The Bell ended up in Paugus as the page explains. Sorry you may have to rotate the image.

Default What page?

The link was scattered all over the place. What page in the book? I'll look it up when I get to camp.

That ad mentions "six mountain ranges." What are they? I know the Ossipee, Sandwich, and Belknap ranges, but what are the other three? Could be Presidential (can see Washington from spots), but what else?

I never realized there was a daily flag stop on Bear Island back then!

Belknap, Sandwich, Squam, Ossipee, Presidential Ranges. I did not know there were 6. I don't know the sixth, unless White Mountain range counted as #6. I always thought Presidential Range was a part of the White Mountains. I know the Mt Washington Cruise ship has a story telling but I think it says "5 ranges can be seen from the Lake. Only place in the world you can see 5 Ranges from one spot" I could be wrong but I doubt it.

Ah, yes! Squam Range—good catch. I can actually see Israel from my camp—can't believe I missed that (it's not on the page Top-Water linked to above).

So, Sandwich, Squam, Belknap, Ossipee, and maybe White + Presidentials separately.
