Who am I?

Thanks to Ted Wilush for identifying the ship as the Eskimo. The ship was built by the Davie Shipbuilding Company for the Canada Steamship Lines and launched on April 27, 1959. The Eskimo was sold to Transport Desgagnes, Inc. in 1980 and renamed the Mathilda Desgagnes. The ship proved very versatile and in addition to the many destinations she visited in the Great Lakes she also journeyed to ports in the Artic, Florida, Texas, New York, Portugal, and Nigeria. In January of 2007 the Mathilda Desgagnes was acquired by Transcomar Shipping in Port au Prince, Haiti and renamed the Gisela.
