The port of Toronto officially opened for business on March 29th with the arrival of the Q & O motorship CHICAGO TRIBUNE with a cargo of barley from the Lakehead. The ship was to have arrived last fall to winter here but was unable to make the Welland Canal before its early closing last December and spent the winter moored at the Government House in Port Colborne. Although the TRIBUNE's master, Capt. Fred Bingham, was awarded the ceremonial top hat for the achievement, we should note that the first arrival of the year was actually the bunkering tanker GULF SENTINEL which wintered here, cleared the harbour on March 23, and returned on March 24 with a cargo of oil to bunker other vessels fitting out in port.
