The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Midland Queen (Propeller), C110991, 1 Aug 1901

Full Text

In the last issue of the Review the length of the steamer MIDLAND QUEEN, built in Scotland for James Playfair of Midland. Ont., and which will soon pass up the Canadian canals to enter into a general freighting business on the lakes, was given as 225 ft. instead of 255 ft. It is quite probable that in shipping circles the error was clearly one of the types, as It is well understood that a vessel designed to suit dimensions of the Canadian canal locks would not be made 225 ft. in length.
