Brockville Historic Area: The Brock Trail

The steamer KINGSTON was a regular visitor to Brockville and other river communities from 1901 to 1949
The SS KINGSTON was built in 1901 for the RICHELIEU & ONTARIO NAVIGATION CO. LTD of Montreal. It was the second in a series of three new paddle steamers built by the BERTRAM ENGINE WORKS COMPANY of Toronto. Each streamer was built bigger than the one before. The TORONTO was the first, in 1899; followed by the KINGSTON; and then the MONTREAL, in 1903.
The KINGSTON was characterized by her two round funnels and two side-paddle wheels. She was 288 ft. long, had a beam of 30.15 ft., a draft of 13.25 ft., and weighed 2925 tons gross.
The ship was designed by Arendt Angstrom, the naval architect of the Bertram company, assisted by L.E. Tornroos.
She was owned by the CANADA STEAMSHIP LINES from 1914 to 1948 and, along with the SS TORONTO, operated on the Toronto-Rochester-Kingston-Thousand Islands-Prescott run. Following the tragic burning of the NORONIC at Toronoto in 1949, overnight lake service with CSL was halted, and the KINGSTON never ran again.
