Trading Places Cement - victoria piersig

Cement is the "glue" that is ever present in our world. From humble village dwellings to large metropolitan areas, cement and concrete are vital components to most people's living environment. I travelled to Lehigh Cement situated outside of Picton Ontario on Picton Bay to join the Stephen B Roman -  a dry cement carrier for her journey to Toronto.
Built in 1965 by the Davie Shipyard at Lauzon Quebec as a packaged freight carrier, she was converted to a bulk cement carrier at the Collingwood Shipyards in 1983. She is yet another example of our Canadian shipbuilding heritage soon to disappear from the landscape as she is nearing retirement.
