AAA Editor Notes
Marine Museum of Manitoba, at the entrance to Selkirk Park at Eveline St. and Queen Ave., reflects Selkirk's nautical past through displays of outboard motors, tools used for early 1900s shipbuilding, two lighthouses and six restored ships. The 1897 passenger steamship SS Keenora houses nautical artifacts and photographs. Other displays include early 1900s underwater diving and a graphite exhibit representing the species of fish caught in Lake Winnipeg and the Red River.
Also displayed are the 1942 Chickama II; the 1944 MS Lady Canadian; the CGS Bradbury, an ice-breaker steam vessel built in 1915; the MS Peguis II, a lake and river tug built in 1955; the Joe Simpson, a freighter built in 1963; and the 1952 Jackie S., the last all wood, white fish (gas boat) to sail Lake Winnipeg.
