The general cargo ship Claudia is seen in this photograph while she was transiting upbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of May 11, 2001. At the time it was taken she was sailing southbound in the canal north of lock 1 in the harbour at Port Weller, Ontario, Canada destined for Chicago with aluminum foil rolls from Holland.

Claudia's career began on September 10th, 1999 when she was delivered to her owners, m.v. Claudia AG (Enzian Shipping AG), Switzerland by the Damen Shipyard in The Netherlands. Her hull had been built by the Yichang Shipyard in Yichang, China. When this photograph was added to the archives she was still active as Claudia and she was operating for Carisbrooke Shipping Ltd. of England
