Wheat King
Wheat King - Port Weller Drydocks - July 22, 1960
Photographed while she was secured alongside the fitout berth at Port Weller Drydocks in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada on 22 July 1960. She had arrived shortly before and was to undergo conversion to a Great Lakes bulk carrier soon afterwards. The newly converted Red Wing can be seen at her stern while the retired canaller Superior can be seen tucked just behind Wheat King's bow.
