The Ferry Ashtabula, just off Port Burwell, Ontario.

Ashtabula was a ferry that traveled between Ashtabula, Ohio, on the south shore of Lake Erie, to Port Burwell, Ontario, on the north shore.[1][2] Ashtabula was built in 1906, at the Great Lakes Engineering Works in St. Clair, Michigan, to transport ore and coal cars.[3] She sank on 18 September 1958 after colliding with the steamer Ben Moreell.
