Photographer's Note

Running empty, Interlake Steamship Company's Herbert C. Jackson leaves the busy St. Clair River and enters Lake Huron on its way to Marquette Michigan for a load of taconite ore. Sister ship, the Mesabi Miner, approaches downbound with a load of iron ore from Duluth Minnesota to a steel mill further downstream.
Hundreds of recreational watercraft including sail boats, motor boats and jet skis shared the waterways with these commercial vessels on the last long weekend of summer.
