The description states:

S.S. NORISLE at TOBERMORY

ONTARIO, CANADA

Passenger and Carr ferry operating between Tobermory and South Bay Mouth, Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada.

–This ferry transported cars, passengers and livestock on a scheduled service until it was retired in 1974, when it was replaced by the now active Chi-Cheemaun Ferry. After leaving service, it was sold and eventually became a museum ship docked at Manitoulin Island. It is now in some disrepair and its future is in doubt.

This postcard, like the others previously shown from this series, dates from the 1960s.
