Scope and Content
Exterior view of the Hotel Loney (later known as the Clifton Hotel), Port Stanley, ca. 1908, looking northwest from just south of the intersection of Main and Bridge Streets. The hotel was constructed in 1896 on the site of the Port Stanley Bath House, which was destroyed by fire in 1894. Note the railway car parked in front of the hotel: likely a car operated by the South Western Traction Company, or its successor, the London and Lake Erie Railway and Transportation Company. The Port Stanley station for the Traction Line was located just south on Main Street from the hotel (just out of view in this photograph). The South Western Traction Company was formed in 1902; began operating passenger service to Port Stanley in 1907; sold in receivership and renamed the London and Lake Erie Railway and Transportation Company in 1908; ceased operations and disbanded in 1918.

Scope and Content
Series of four photographs showing the Payne House, the Old Customs House, the Clifton Hotel, and a commercial bakery, Port Stanley, ca. 1929. The photos were probably commissioned by St. Thomas lawyer Edgar C. Sanders, Sanders & Ingram, barristers and solicitors, who was likely managing the estate of Manuel Payne, (d. 1927). The Payne House and Customs House are shown as for sale.
Image 44_18766a shows the rear of the Clifton Hotel (formerly the Loney House hotel) and an unidentified commercial bakery conducting business in the former South-Western Traction Company (later London and Lake Railway and Transportation Company) railway station building on the west side of Main Street, just south of Bridge Street. The grain elevator on the west side of the inner harbour and the bridge across the inner harbour are partially visible in the background. Image must pre-date 1937 because the bridge shown was demolished in that year to make way for the King George VI Lift Bridge (opened May, 1939).
Image 44_18766b shows the "Payne House" (built in 1873 by Port Stanley postmaster and customs officer Manuel Payne) and Customs House on the east side of Main Street.
Images 44_18766c-d show the Payne House.

History / Biographical
The "Marquette and Bessemer 2" was lost on Lake Erie, and to this day the 350" long, 54' wide and 60' high boat has never been located. She has been described as the "Holy Grail" of Lake Erie wrecks. The boat left Conneaught Ohio at 10:43 am on December 7th and was to arrive in Port Stanley around 5 pm. It was heard blowing its' whistle outside the harbour, but never made it. The trip saw the temperature drop from 40 F to 10 F and facing 70 mile an hour winds and huge waves. The boat was carrying 30 coal cars with 32 people on board. William Tyler from St. Thomas was at first thought to be on board, but he had quit the crew a week before. In total, only 14 bodies were recovered. The picture shows the Captain Robert Rowan McLeod and the boat (dynamite was being used to break up ice in this photo). There are many theories about the location and hopefully with modern technology she may one day be found.
Scope and Content
Steam car ferry "Marquette and Bessemer No. 2", docked on the east side of Port Stanley harbour ca. 1905. Built in Cleveland, Ohio in 1905. Owned and operated by the Marquette & Bessemer Dock & Navigation Company and principally used to ferry railway cars and their freight between Conneaut, Ohio and Port Stanley, Ontario. Ship was lost with all hands on a trip from Conneaut, Ohio to Port Stanley, Ontario on December 7, 1909. The large building shown in the far background at right is the Hotel Loney (later known as the Clifton Hotel). Postcard-format image with caption "Pere Marquette Transfer at Dock, Port Stanley".

Scope and Content
St. Thomas Bicycle Club, posed in front of the Hotel Loney in Port Stanley, ca. 1898. The Hotel Loney was constructed in 1896 on the former site of the Port Stanley Bath House, which was destroyed by fire in 1894. It is likely that this photograph was taken on the same day as Cameron Collection item L-9, which shows the same group at the Royal Templars of Temperance Hall in Union. The group are riding "safety"-style bicycles, which were introduced in the late 1880s/ early 1890s, replacing the "ordinary" or "pennyfarthing" style bicycle with the oversized front wheel. An advertisement for lager produced by St. Thomas brewery Rudolph & Begg is visible. The Hotel Loney was later known as the Clifton Hotel. File includes:
