Further Information - Originally built in 1859, she worked the waters of Coniston until 1936. Converted to a house-boat in 1946. In 1979 she was completely rebuilt - new hull, new steam engine, and most of the superstructure, and is still in service today, but owned by the National Trust. The postcard is from her earlier life, and is over 100 years old. The main visible difference between the old and the new is that she has a 'bridge' nowadays..
