The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Marine Review (Cleveland, OH), 15 Jun 1899

Full Text

Around the Great Lakes. Mr. Frank E. Kirby, who is still engaged by the government in looking after army transport work, says that in all probability it will be fully a year before he severs his connection with the Detroit Ship building Co. and his plans beyond that time have not been definitely determined. Mr. Kirby goes to Toronto this week to be present at the trial of the handsome side-wheel steamer Toronto, built by the Bertram Engine Works Co. of Toronto, for the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co. In this connection it is interesting to note that Mr. Kirby with Mr. A. Angstrom of the Bertram works, has prepared plans for a steamer to run through from Toronto to Montreal and also for a type of steamer for service on the St. Lawrence alone, but the Richelieu company, although certain to undertake the building of more new vessels is as yet undecided.
