Trillium and Toronto Island
by Filey, Mike
3rd ed. The story of the steam ferry, “Trillium”, launched in 1910 for the Toronto Island Company to service the Islands and Toronto Bay. The double-ended, side-paddled vessel cruised local Toronto waters for nearly 50 years and was retired in 1956. She was saved from the scrap yard in the early 70s and was fully restored. She is still in service today. As the “Trillium” celebrates her centenary, Filey revisits the history of this fascinating Canadian ship.
