SS Keewatin being moved to the dock in Port McNicholl, Ontario, Canada. It had previously been on display as a museum ship on Lake Michigan in the States. On June 23 of this year it was returned to Canada and has opened as a museum ship again.

 It was built in Scotland in 1905 and shares a number of design features with the Titanic. It has a quadruple expansion engine that still runs on air. The staterooms have been fitted out to reflect the era. It ran until 1965 in the service of Canadian Pacific Railway running from Midland, Ontario, to Fort William (now Thunder Bay) Ontario.
