1/12 - Historical Perspective - Roger LeLievre from the Tom Manse collection - Views of Little Rapids Cut/Mission Point at Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., nearly 50 years ago.

J. Burton Ayers (now Cuyahoga) upbound and Col. James M. Schoonmaker (now Willis B. Boyer) downbound. Note that the road to Mission Point has yet to be completed.- 1950s.

Unidentified U.S. Army Corps of Engineers tug pulls the gate lifter Paul Bunyan past the Coast Guard lookout station, perhaps in the early 1960s. This station, officially known as Lookout #3, was disposed of by burning in the 1980s. The property, now a city park, is a popular spot for boat watching.

Unidentified saltie passes Lookout # 3. Note the coastguardsman with the binoculars on the second level of the structure. The vessel may have been a unit of American Export-Isbrandtsen Lines.
