KING OF THE RIVERBOATMEN
John worked on and in his fathers business....which entailed stern-wheeler ships, of which was involved in the shipping of miners and supplies to the rich goldfields of Barkerville.
This is a reasonably short article...but it is interesting to know about this interesting man along with the history of stern-wheelers in this era of Canada in the late 1800's.
