The 1906-built bulk carrier Helen Evans is seen in this photograph as she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of July 12th, 1970. At the time it was taken she was nearing the entrance of the canal and was about to enter Lake Ontario possibly enroute to Quebec with grain. On October 30th, 1980, after a long career she arrived at Mamonal, Colombia, with another retired Great Lakes steamer, Thornhill. There they were both cut up for scrap.
