S.S. Klondike - Whitehorse, Yukon

The S.S. Klondike Photo Album
The paddlewheel was originally 19 feet 4 inches in diameter, 23 feet long, with 16 buckets. In 1947, this 19 foot 10 inch wheel was installed, probably to get the buckets deeper into the water with the lighter loads she was carrying at the time.
