1885 The race across the lake in a terrible storm to stop the fire
In 1885, the Oriole was in Niagara with her owner, George Gooderham aboard when the Esplanade fire threatened the Gooderham family distillery and elevator. The flames were visible across the lake and Oriole dashed for home, driven by an easterly gale. In mid-lake, she opened up and barely made the north shore, never to sail again as George ordered her career brought to an honourable close.
