    Caption on image: First Trip of Miles Glacier Ferry July 9. '09 C.R. & N.W. RyHandwritten on verso of image is a letter from Livingston Wernecke, a geologist and UW graduate who appears to have been working on the construction of the C.R. & N.W. Railway, to UW Professor Milnor Roberts: Dear Prof. Roberts, This card is one of my own manufacture of an object of my own invention, both drawings and construction ... has been my chief worry for the 4 1/2 mos. when the lake was not frozen over. Because of floating ice bergs, the cost of maintenance was 1/3 of the original cost. Best wishes for a merry Christmas and a Happy year of 1910.
