Lovely pic on the wall...right across the street from the locks. Be sure to view & take a picture when visiting Port Carling. This was right beside our boarding for the Peerless II.

A must see if you have any appreciation for art and history. Take time to study some of the 9000 individual phots that make up this collage of a iconic lake supply ship.
