Northern Michigan From Above: The James R. Barker

Nmfa 11 30 21

The James R. Barker is not the longest freighter on the Great Lakes at 1,004 feet – falling 10 feet short of that title.

You might say the Barker has the mightiest horn, though.

In this week’s Northern Michigan From Above, photojournalist Jim Lehocky not only shows us the Barker, but also lets us hear it with a long salute from the captain to those on shore at Rotary Park in Sault Ste. Marie.
