Fantail Excursion

This turn-of-the-century scene recalls an era of more graceful lines and a slower pace. A properly dressed couple seated in their wicker deck chairs head out into the bay in an 1890′s naptha-powered fantail launch. Parasoled ladies are rowed about in wine-glass stern skiffs. Gaff-rigged catboats catch an afternoon breeze. The 1872 side-wheel lake steamer Mount Washington arrives in Wolfeboro Bay on its scheduled route around Lake Winnipesaukee, providing an essential link for passengers and freight on the Boston and Maine Railroad.
