Seaway Queens focuses on the design and beauty of the most celebrated Lakes vessels built between 1950 and 1969 on the American and Canadian sides of the Great Lakes, when form and function were not mutually exclusive. The book includes first-person accounts and interviews with some of the vessels’ and industry’s builders and shapers. It also provides a brief overview of the modern era, in which technology and innovation ensure that the freshwater fleet continues to play an important role in society.
Jim McRae’s book covers the history of shipping from its beginnings to the present day, with ten themed chapters covering major changes and developments in areas such as technology, fleet renewal, and the environment.
