1995: The awesome tides and the shallow harbour at Iqaluit provide some dramatic scenes as evidenced in the two lower photos. Here the MV Lady Franklin is off-loading cargo in Iqaluit during the annual sea-lift. At high tide, a barge was used to ferry the cargo to shore.

At low tide the trucks drove right alongside the grounded ship.
