Thousands of ships sail through the Great Lakes, a major passageway from the U.S. and Canada and a gateway to the rest of the world.

They are hauntingly beautiful to watch on a foggy night and spectacular sights on a sunny day.
Letters adorned on their bow and stern tell of their origin. Some are quite obvious while others depend on our knowledge of faraway places.
