Scan of a 45 year old photograph of The Middletown entering the Soo Locks from Lake Huron. She started out as the USS Neshanic (AO-71) in WWII as a Kennebec-class oiler operating between the US and Japan. She was decommissioned in 1945 and sold to the Gulf Oil Company. In 1962 the ship was lengthened from 500 feet to 730 feet and converted to a bulk carrier and the name changed to the Middletown. In 1962 she was converted to a self-unloader and spend the majority of her time hauling various ores around the Great Lakes. She was resold in 2006 and renamed American Victory. It was sold again in 2017 and in 2018 she was towed to a Turkish scrapyard to be cut up.
