Steamboat on Lake Yellowstone [1913]

From our collection of old postcards ...

Fun in 1913 in Yellowstone National Park

Postmarked September 17, 1913
Yellowstone Park, Wyoming

Description on back of card.

Google Maps -- Yellowstone National Park
Have you seen the Lake in Yellowstone?
YNP is mostly in the Northwest corner of Wyoming


  1. I've been to Yellowstone a couple of times but I don't think I visited the lake. I was surprised to find out these facts, John. I went during winter and spent a week at the lodge, cross country skiing during the day. :-)

  2. What a great way to see the scenery.

  3. The lake is now being overrun with alien Lake Trout replacing the native cutthroats. I still love it though for flyfishing...:)

  4. That steamboat reminds me of pictures I've seen depicting Noah's ark.

  5. Yellowstone is one of my favorite places!! Wish I could take a "cruise" on that little boat!! Thanks for sharing, as always, John!! Hope your week is going well!!

  6. They had some pretty fancy boats at that time.

  7. What fun to go sailing down the river/lake on one of these.


  8. All your collections of post cards and history is very interesting.
