Its seems to be the trend today, old sections of the Port of Montreal hss been under going the same remake, the Port of Montreal brought in some six developers to sumbit plans for elevator 5 at the Western end of the port, most of that part of the port has been redesigned estically, its not what it used to be, for us older folk its hard getting use to, for the younger generation, its something new and pleasing to the eye, for nostalgic reasons, I enjoyed it the way it was, I suppose we have to move along with the pace.

This was Coe Metcalf vessel "Firethorn" of 1967, 1041 Gross tons 67 M. LOA. Subsequently sold to Navigar Inc. and completly overhauled at Cork Dockyard with new derrick booms fitted in Jan/Feb 1994. Sailed to the caribbean as the "Limerick" and I believe later arrested for drug running.I supervised repairs - all costs paid in cash U.S. Dollars

Thanks for your comments Kent.
This part of the port is no longer commercially used The last berth in the enclosed dock was forced to close this year. It is now all a marina with high class apartments being built around the dock.

Ipswich, My first port in England 1957, we boarded 250 British Marines and took them to Norway. Surprisingly, we get to see some of those coasters in Montreal, the Arklow vessels and others have braved the Atlantic and sailed to Montreal. great photo Derek.
