The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Colonel (Propeller), U127553, 1901

Full Text

On Saturday of this week one of the two steel freight steamers building at Detroit for capitalists who will be represented in the management of the vessels by Mr. A. McVittie will be launched. This vessel will be ready for service early next month. She will be named COLONEL. The second steamer will be launched shortly and will be ready for business about Sept.10. The big side-wheel passenger steamers to be built by the Detroit company will be put down on berths vacated - by these freighters. Lloyd's strict requirements have delayed work on the Morley steamer - Canadian canal size - building at Detroit, but when she is completed she will be a very trim craft, fit to trade to any part of the world.
