Any marine historian of the lower lakes, and especially those who know Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, will be familiar with the handsome 85-foot steam tug RIVAL, which dates from 1923. She was, of course, one of the Sin-Mac tugs and is still operated by McAllister Towing, although she has since been dieselized and rarely leaves Montreal harbour.

In any event, there is now available a fine 11 x 14 print of a spirited pen-and-ink drawing of RIVAL done by one of our members, Miss Barbara Carson of Kingston. The print is suitable for framing and is obtainable for the price of $1.00 from another of our members, Mr. Nels Wilson, 22 Grange Street, Kingston, K7M 2J4. Cheques or money orders should be made payable to the Marine Society of South Marysburgh, for whose benefit the print is being sold.

Incidentally, RIVAL was at one time chartered to Lloyd Tankers Ltd. and is described in this month's Fleet List elsewhere in this issue.
