Edward L. Ryerson
The Edward L. Ryerson was up bound in the St. Marys River this afternoon. It is always an event to see the old beauty passing by. The Ryerson has been a favorite of mine ever since it first began sailing in 1960. It was always a favorite of my grandfather as well.
Checking the shipping records, I found that the Ryerson is still a work horse, in spite of her advanced age.
The Ryerson passed here down bound on July 19. She arrived in Hamilton with a load of iron ore pellets and departed light after unloading on July 23 at 4:10 AM. She is expected to arrive back at Superior, Wisconsin on Saturday, July 26 between 3 - 4 PM.
Try meeting her at Mission Point in the Sault for a great photo opportunity. She should be back in 3- 4 days.
