Being a slow and HOT day, here's a happening on the DL&W 70 years ago in 1938. The attached news clipping notes DL&W's annual outing for its Buffalo area employees. As with many groups, they boarded the CANADIANA at the DL&W dock at the foot of Main Street and made the 45 min. boat trip to Crystal Beach, Canada amusement park. Over 4,000 people attended. Its amazing that almost the entire article is a list of who attended, who were on committeees and who were judges. Hardly a word about the picnic itself.

Boats loaded Crystal Beach goers from about 1890 to 1956. The attached photo shows typical boarding in 1910 at the DL&W lake freighthouse.
