Date Issued:
1982
Summary:
By 1982, the City of Sanibel took over the twenty-five acres of property surrounding the Algiers, and after considering it as a potential spot for its City Hall, decided the boat had deteriorated too far to be renovated, and dismantled it after holding an auction of many of its parts. The site of the Algiers is now Gulfside Park. This view shows the rear of the boat, including its paddlewheel, along the length of the pond/channel that allowed the boat ashore.
