Cedarglen departing Duluth harbor

The Cedarglen will be here today to load taconite. It was built in West Germany in 1959 as an ocean going ore carrier and often carried ore between Venezuela and Europe. In 1976, it was purchased by a Canadian firm to carry iron ore between Labrador and Hamilton, Ontario. Now owned by Canada Steamship Lines, it visits the Twin Ports a couple times a year. Today is the first trip this season. Last year, it loaded taconite on both trips, the years before it was usually grain. Photo taken June 16, 2004.
