The bulk carrier Algonorth is seen in this photograph as she was sailing southbound on Lake Ontario approaching the entrance of the Welland Canal during the afternoon hours of October 4th, 1989. She was about to begin an upbound voyage through the canal destined for Thunder Bay to load grain.

Algoma renamed the Lake Nipigon as the Algonorth in 1987 with the carrier entering service following a refit and paint at Port Weller Dry Docks, St. Catharines, ON during the summer of 1987. The vessel’s new name assumes the fleet prefix “Algo” with “north” referring to Algoma’s railway route north from Sault Ste. Marie, ON. From 1993 through January 2000, the Algonorth sailed under the management of Seaway Bulk Carriers, Winnipeg, MB; a partnership of Algoma Central and Upper Lakes Group.
