American Victory arriving Duluth

The American Victory loaded limestone in Ashtabula and will be here today to discharge it. It will then move over to the Burlington Northern dock in Superior to load taconite for Lorain, Ohio. It visited here many times as the Middletown. It became the American Victory when it was sold by Oglebay Norton to American Steamship last Spring. Above, it is entering the Duluth harbor in June, also with a cargo of limestone. The boat retains the same colors it sailed with when owned by Oglebay Norton. However, the stack has been repainted to reflect the new owners.
