The Charles Donnelly

Charles Donnelly Pic

Though slightly off of the topic of Gasoline Engines, I still thought this would be an interesting picture to post. This is a picture of the ship my Grandfather served as First Mate on for a few years back in the 50's (?). The ship is called the "Charles Donnelly" and was part of company known as Nicholson Transit. This ship was a coal fired steamer and was used to transport iron ore from Buffalo, NY to Duluth, Minnesota and somewhere around Thunder Bay, Ontario (Canada) via the Great Lakes.
