20090731_0093Peter R. Cresswell was launched in 1982 as the Algowest and began loading wheat from Western Canada in Thunder Bay and taking it to a port at the mouth of the St. Lawrence Seaway where the wheat was transferred to an ocean going ship. In the late 90’s, a self unloader was added to her deck, enabling her to start carrying iron ore pellets and other bulk cargo such as limestone and coal. Late in the season of 2001, she was rechristened the Peter R. Cresswell, the same day that Peter R. Cresswell retired from his position as President and Chief Executive Officer of Algoma Central Corporation. Picture above taken Tuesday, July 28, 2009
