The Hazel Ferry info taken from the achrives of McNeese. I was researching old Lake Charles, La for historical buildings to paint and came across this ferry"Steamer" and thought it would make a nice painting. The time period was around the early 1900's
  In June, 1888, Captain A. W. Wehrt established the ferry between Lake Charles and Westlake, Louisiana and with the growth and development of the ferry has increased proportionately, until today.  It is absolutely indispensable to the citizens of this section in their intercourse between the two places.  
            The Steamer Hazel, which is the largest boat upon Lake Charles, and Calcasieu River, is a well-built double hull craft, 89 feet long, with a 37 foot beam, and in addition to the two cabins and lower deck, has a beautiful and spacious upper deck, which gives the traveler a commanding view of the city, lake, river and surrounding territory.  
            The Hazel is especially well-equipped for the transportation of heavy and package freight as well as passengers, being operated upon a regular winter and summer schedule on her trip of two and one-half miles across the lake and return.

I saw this bust at my daughter's house last weekend. I took photos of it and painted it.  I thought it was pretty.  I used turquoise,white,sienna and green and red.  I like how it came out. I framed and signed it.
