'NORTH WEST - BUFFALO NY' painted life-ring
The North West began its life as one of the finest passenger steamers ever built for service on the Great Lakes -- and, after a series of unusual events, ended that life by being torpedoed by the Germans during World War II. The twin-screw North West was launched in 1894 in Cleveland by the Globe Iron Works Co. for the Northern Steamship Co. She was furnished and decked out in Buffalo, the hometown of Northern Steamship.
Signed Olafig Krano ? Measures 22cm diameter.
