9. PHOTO FOLLOW-UPS S U P E R I 0 R C I T Y When we put together our history of the steamer SUPERIOR CITY for the Octo­ ber issue, we were lacking a photograph of the ship when she first came out, sailing for the Zenith Transit Company. Thanks to member Leonard J. Barr II, of St. Clair, Michigan, we now can present such a photo, apparently taken at the Soo. You will note that it proves that SUPERIOR CITY, as built, carried three masts and not just two. The removal of the original main and mizzen, and the relocation of the main to a position abaft the smokestack no doubt were done to avoid having the masts interfere with shore-mounted loading chutes and unloading rigs. M A R I T I M E T R A D E R One of the big news stories recently has concerned the escape from the clut­ ches of the scrappers of the straight-deck bulk carrier TEAKGLEN, (a) MANTA­ DOC (ii)(02), built at Collingwood in 1967. Now reactivated by Voyageur Ma­ rine Transport Ltd., Ridgeville, Ontario, for the Canadian grain trade, she made her first transit of the Welland Canal downbound on October 6, 2005, and Skip Gillham took this photo of her above Lock 7. * * * * *
