Dayton: The Lumberjack Breakfast (Instantaneo)

 

In both Canada and the United States, the traditional full breakfast is popular, though is more commonly eaten on weekends and holidays.
During the week, a smaller breakfast is commonly eaten, often immediately before or while commuting to work or school.

Steamboats played a major role in the 19th-century development of the Mississippi River and its tributaries by allowing the practical large-scale transport of passengers and freight both up- and down-river.
Using steam power, riverboats were developed during that time which could navigate in shallow waters as well as upriver against strong currents.

After the development of railroads passenger traffic gradually switched to this faster form of transportation, but steamboats continued to serve Mississippi River commerce into the early 20th Century.
