Blockade Of Boats
Soo Michigan (MI), Divided Back unused

Description:
This large fleet of steamers were held in Mud Lake by the anchor ice, during the spring of 1907, and were released by tugs, all of them arriving at the “So” about the same time. This crowded the capacity of the locks to such an extent that the fleet had to tie up at the lower piers and await their turn to lock through in such a case, the need of a third lock, now under construction, is keenly in evidence

Title:
Ice Blockade Zimmerman In Lead
Soo Michigan (MI), Divided Back PM 1911

Description:
Showing a fleet of steamers, caught fast in the anchor ice out in Lake Superior. Anchor ice is so called for the reason that it is jammed in together in a narrow part of a river in much the same way as a log jam occurs. The ice keeps piling up on top of itself until it is nearly a solid mass to the bed of the river. This string of boats extends back for miles and seldom are they able to release themselves without the aid of tugs or ice crushing boats. Sometimes they are held in the ice for many days.
