Northern Prairie Steamboats: Bonnitoba

Built in early 1909 by J. L. Hyland of the Hyland Navigation & Trading Company, and launched on 7 July 1909, the Bonnitoba took excursionists up and down the Red River, delivering them to the privately-owned Hyland Park north of Winnipeg. The ship had a short life, being destroyed by ice near Winnipeg in 1913.
