Algoriver is seen in this photograph while she was transiting upbound in the Welland Canal in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada during the afternoon hours of September 28th, 1999. At the time it was taken she was sailing southbound in the canal in ballast destined for Thunder Bay, Ontario to load another cargo of grain for export overseas.

With the demise of the Misener fleet and Great Lakes Bulk Carriers; Algoma Central Corp., Sault Ste. Marie, ON acquired the John A. France in 1994, renaming her Algoriver in June. Her new name was derived from her new owner’s fleet prefix “Algo” and “river” in honor of the St. Marys River joining Lake Superior with Lake Huron.
