The Virginia

The Virginia


George Finstad and the Virginia, 1928. Original description: “The water was so low this spring we had a hard time getting some of the boats in. This is Major Roberts' cruiser, the Virginia. The steam alligator is pulling one way and the hoist engine is trying to get the cradle from underneath it away. Notice the cable from the hoist engine and George [Finstad] has just been down to the lake to see if everything is ok. He runs this track every time he pulls out boats."
