Passing Hamilton on Sunday, August 12, I noticed both Algoma Montrealais and Algoma Quebecois tucked in behind Algolake at Dofasco - something I never expected to see again and likely will never see again. With the thought that the Algoma Provider was also laid up in the harbor decided to go back the next day for another look. I arrived just in time to catch the two still together in the Dofasco slip. Within minutes the Quebecois smoked up and began to back away from the dock. Aside from the Shelley these vessels are the last of a classic line which will too soon be gone.

Still together the next day, a sight I didn't expect to see and one that may not occur again

Immediately the Algoma Quebecois
 began to smoke up

Within a minute of my arrival she
was backing away from the dock
