Cadillac



Who am I?

Initially The Rock identified this Mystery Ship as either the Cadillac or the Frontenac as both ships sailed for the Cleveland-Cliffs Steamship Company. Recently, Ted Wilush postitively identified the ship as the Cadillac. The Cadillac was initially named the Lake Angelina when launched in 1943. Once acquired by the Cleveland-Cliffs Steamship Company that same year she was renamed the Cadillac. The Cadillac was laid up for the last time 1981 and scrapped in 1987.

We know from the stack with that (red) "C" that it is a Cleveland Cliffs vessel. Most of their boats during the late 40's had the stern mast located behind rather than forward of the funnel.

I'd say that the Cadillac and the Frontenac are in the running.

Looks like she is passing someone,too!
