Canadian Pacific’s Last Surviving Passenger Steamship S.S. Keewatin Passes Under The Mackinac Bridge at 10:35 am on June 4, 2012

The former Canadian Pacific Great Lakes steamship Keewatin is seen here at about 10:35 local time this morning passing under the Mackinac Bridge from Lake Michigan into Lake Huron. The 105-year-old Clyde-built steamship will lay over at Mackinaw City for a few days before completing the final leg of her return voyage to her former home port of Port McNicoll, Ontario, where she is due at 2 pm on June 23. This will be one hundred years to the day from when she departed on her first Canadian Pacific passenger sailing from the same port bound for Sault Ste Marie, Port Arthur and Fort William. The Keewatin will become the centrepiece of a waterfront park in her old home port on Georgian Bay. Here now are some of the results of that voyage:  Photo essay of the Keewatin‘s voyage from Mackinaw City to Port McNicoll.
