12/9 - Welland Canal
- Bill Bird

When the Herbert C. Jackson entered the Welland Canal at Port Colborne on December 9th,  it marked the first time in almost 40 years since she'd been in this neck of the woods. Remains of Algosoo at IMS scrapyard in the background. 
Recently repowered and with a new paint job she almost looks brand new. And yet she's on her second half century of work on the Great Lakes.
Built in 1959.

It wasn't until she was almost on top of us that the sun came out.



Easing her way into Wharf 16 where she would stop for inspection.

After several hours she would be on her way again with a cargo of iron ore for Quebec City.  View from Clarence St. bridge.
