Title

Launch of the Cambria - 1862

Description

A full description of the launch of the ship "Cambria" from the 24 April 1862 issue of the St. Catharines Constitutional newspaper. The ship was built by Louis Shickluna and the article stated the following about his craftsmanship:

“We need pass no eulogy on Mr. Shickluna’s ship building capabilities, for he has earned a Provincial reputation as a first class marine architect. No man better deserves the title, for every vessel that passes from his hands is built with a view to strength, symmetry and speed, and his great success in business is the best evidence that he combines all three qualities in his ships to a nicety.”
