Description

"Great Lakes Steamships: An extremely agreeable variation to the railway journey during the summer months is a trip up the Great Lakes by a Canadian Pacific steamer, plying both from Port McNicoll and Owen Sound on Georgian Bay to Fort William. Three sailings a week are maintained each way, and the trip takes a little less than two days."
