GREAT LAKE MEMORIES On many occasions in these pages, we have mentioned the famous Anchor Line triplets that later operated for the Great Lakes Transit Corporation. They were TIONESTA, JUNIATA and OCTORARA, the latter being the last of them to come out - in 1910. Your Editor recently was lucky enough to be able to acquire these two post card views of OCTORARA relatively late in her career, with the foredeck closed in and the new pilothouse in place. The G. L. T. C. passenger service was done in by a combination of the Great Depression and the ramifica­ tions of the MORRO CASTLE fire. OCTORARA was to have gone to Lake Michigan as did JUNIATA (MILWAUKEE CLIPPER) but that never happened and she went to salt water in the war, never to return. Our question? Can anybody tell us where these photos were taken? We don't recognize the lo­ cation. Any and all suggestions will be welcomed. * * * * * * *
