Who am I?
The ship was built in 1901 at Lorain, Ohio by the American Ship Building Company. She was acquired by the Interlake Steamship Company in 1913 and converted to a crane ship in 1927. The ship was sold several times during the next 20 years before being purchased in 1958 by the Steel Products Steamship Company. The ship was renamed Steel Products at that time. In 1961, she was sold to Marine Salvage, Ltd. in Port Colborne, Ontario for scrapping. On the way there, the ship broke the tow line and partially sank at Point Abino, Ontario. The Venus never went any further and was scrapped on that spot during the winter of 1961.
