Borealis Rex passing a draw bridge

Maritime Monday: The Borealis Rex

The Borealis Rex navigated the Louisiana waters of Calcasieu River between Lake Charles and Cameron from 1905 to 1930. During the week, the paddlewheel steamer was used to transport mail, supplies and people conducting business along the river. Nights and weekends were for leisure - when the Rex was used for parties, moonlight dances, Sunday afternoon cruises and joy rides.
