The 1975-built bulk carrier Pollux is seen in this photograph as she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the late afternoon hours of October 19th, 1986. She was approaching the Homer Bridge after having just departed from lock 3 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

She sailed originally as Boujniba and was renamed Pollux in 1986, shortly before this picture was taken. In 1987 her name was extended to Pollux I and she carried that name for the remainder of her career. On September 9th, 2001 she arrived at Chittagong, Bangladesh where scrapping of the 26 year old ship was undertaken.
