My father travelled to and from Resolution Island in Hudson Strait, south of Baffin Island, where he worked as a radio/telegraph operator during WWII from 1944 until shortly after peace was declared in 1945.

Good photo, but it's really at the state of being an eye sore.

Thanks for sharing,

As a young Sea Cadet in 1950-51 I sailed on this vessel in Montreal harbor breaking ice, it was my first ride aboard a ship, you could say it was my first taste of ship life, she looked better in 1950,in those days she was under the Department of Transport and sported different colors. This photo does not do her justice.

A very prescious shot that worth a million $! By the way, if you got anything about marine industries limited, just behind the N.B Mclean, it would very intersting!
Thanks for all your pictures

Watch for photos of this ship at work taken in the '60s that I'll post in the future, She was the largest icebreaker in the world when built.

Very good shot of N.B. Mclean at Sorel. This ice breaker came at Ville de la Baie, until in l960.
I appreciate this ice breaker because my brother built it miniature. It pleasure to see old photos of differents ships. Thanks Michell
