The 1976/77-built, 14,904-dwt, 8,842-grt Freedom Class general cargo vessel Pozega is seen in this photograph while she was transiting upbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of October 26th, 1982. At the time it was taken she was sailing southbound in the canal below lock 1 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

She was built in Japan by Ishikawajima Harima Heavy Industries in Tokyo, Japan for The Pozega Shipping Company. She entered service early in 1977 as Pozega. In the time since her construction she sailed as Pozega (85), Alsod (89), Lincoln K (96), Globalstar (2000) and finally Glory until she was retired. On July 19th, 2001 she arrived at Alang, India where she later beached herself. In the weeks that followed she was broken up for scrap.
