Following pretty close to the Ojibway was the Herbert C. Jackson.
The Herbert C. Jackson was built at the Great Lakes Engineering Works in the 1950's.
A couple of years ago, she hit the Jefferson Avenue bridge and given the fact she's out and about and the Jefferson Avenue Bridge isn't, I would say that she won that battle. Although for the life of me, I don't understand why it is taking so long to repair the bridge.
I guess it goes without saying, that I love the classic lakers.
Especially this one, because she looks so sleek.
The pilothouse looks almost swept back. She almost looks like she could be a racer.
She is still powered by steam, but part of me wonders how long that will last.
I stayed in St. Clair after the Ojibway passed. Like I said, she was following fairly close.
She gives me the view I really like.
And then she passes by.
Giving me a beam shot.
A shot of her deckhouse.
And she continues on her way.
Since I was already at Belle Isle, I figured I would catch her there too. Although, she didn't have much further on her journey since she was heading to Dearborn to deliver her load of taconite.
