The tugboat Daniel McAllister in the old port.


This tugboat is the largest preserved in Canada and the second-oldest oceangoing tug in the world. Its home as been the old port since the 1980’s. It began its life in 1907 as the “Helena”. It worked in the Great lakes area in the 1940’s and in the mid 1960’s guided the large Canadian Pacific ocean liners: The Empress of Canada and The Empress of England. After its restoration in the 1980’s it has made its home in the old port of Montreal. I like the juxtaposition of the color red over the black and this caught my eye.
