The Strathmore was built as the Gordon Campbell and registered U.S. It was rebuilt in 1888, then renamed Strathmore and re-registered Canadian in 1906. Stranded and burned on Michipicoten Island, Lake Superior, on November 14, 1906. The wreck lies in Shafer Bay of Michipicoten Island of Lake Superior. The bottom of the wreck lies in 25’ to 30’ of water with the engine reaching up as shallow as 5 ft. What is unique in the site is the configuration of the twin screw engines. Note the cylinders are two different sizes which may indicate they were configured in a double expansion mode. This is likely the only example of two separate engines configured in a double expansion mode in the Great Lakes.
