Built in 1896, the SS Meteor is the last surviving above-water whaleback ship in the world. It operated until 1969 and is now a museum ship on Barker’s Island in Superior. The documentary embedded above was created by Duluth Film Company, a division of GOV Productions.
Fascinated by the late-1960s footage of the Meteor cruising behind the then-new Duluth Arena? The raw film, via Joseph Meierhoff, is embedded below.
