Olympic Melody exiting Duluth ship canal

After a few days at anchor off the Duluth piers, the Olympic Melody came into port on Tuesday evening. It has been loading wheat for Italy. The ship is one of 5 owned by a trust set up by Aristotle Onassis for the benefit of his children. Mr. Onassis, now deceased, was the famous Greek shipping magnate more famous perhaps for marrying Jackie Kennedy. The Olympic Melody has visited the Twin Ports about once a year since 1996. Above, it is departing Duluth in July, 2000.
