The Pioneer

The first dock of substance was built on the same location as the first dock, due south of the council ring. It was narrow but functional and was in place by 1906. Instead of taking canoes out to unload the steamers, they were then able to steam right to the island. The Temagami (above left) and Bobs were two of the earliest on the lake, coming after the railway arrived in 1904. 

The diving tower and slide (below) were added by 1910. The preference in bathing wear was overwhelmingly none at all.
