Alpena is here today to discharge cement

Built as the Leon Fraser in 1942, the Alpena is here today to discharge cement at the Lafarge Docks in Superior and Duluth. It is one of the oldest and prettiest boats working the Great Lakes, and has one of the best, and loudest, steam whistles on the Great Lakes too.
