The “Swan” plied what was then called the Florida East Coast Canal (later, the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway) during the early 1910’s. On the first level, the steamer carried freight, including crates of pineapple, citrus, and fresh winter vegetables. The crew was housed in cabins on the third or upper level. At other times, the “Swan” carried passengers between Daytona Beach and Vero Beach, a trip which lasted a day and a half. Passengers slept overnight in the cabins on the third level; their automobiles parked on the first level. Courtesy, State Archives of Florida, Florida Memory.
