MN0956 LOCKPORT - ST. ANDREWS - STEAMER ENTERING LOCKS NORTHBOUND
Unposted.

Brimming with passengers, this steamboat is shown entering the locks at St. Andrews from the north. I wonder if this wasn't an occasion of some importance, as there were at least two photographers present (one in the picture on the left and one taking this photo). The name of the boat is not evident, but I wonder if this might be the Victoria (or "Victorian") - the first vessel to sail through the locks on May 2, 1910. (The locks were officially opened on July 14 when the Winnitoba passed through them with Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier aboard.

I never took note before, but at this point, the bridge was not completed. that didn't happen until 1913.
