The 1962-built bulk carrier Thorold (4) is seen in this photograph as she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of December 10th, 1978. At the time it was taken she was sailing northbound in the canal around mile 19 in Welland north of lock 8 destined for Quebec with grain. In 1985 she was renamed Catherine Desgagnes by Desgagnes Transports Inc. of Quebec, Canada. She still sails today under that name. Photograph by Gordon Turner.
