2-Jackson-6-23-09-BW.jpg (95157 bytes)

This vertical view shows the bow of the grain boat just clearing the Southern bridge abutment and the LaFarge Cement Dock as the ship is centered in the channel.
4-Jackson-6-23-09-BW.jpg (112074 bytes)
We now see a pleasure boater taking his life in his hands by wheeling past the Jackson as she maneuvers through the turn. A bow thruster application at this moment could easily swamp a smaller craft like this. The tug and the ship were in constant contact about various boaters trying to impatiently sneak by during the tow.

 - Brian Halliday
Adam-E-Cornelius.jpg (51065 bytes)
From my late father's collection.   It was taken on the Canadian side of the St. Clair River, I believe adjacent to where the power lines crossed the river (well before the Lambton Generating Station was built).    My uncle's family had a farm at Bowen Creek, just north of LGS, and my father took this photo one morning.
