Explorers discover New York ship sunk in 1906

Team release first images of the schooner Queen of the Lakes following its discovery in Lake Ontario.

    Undersea explorers have released the first images of an early 20th-century shipwreck, found in one of North America's Great Lakes.

    The schooner Queen of the Lakes set off from Rochester, New York, for the Canadian port town of Kingston in November 1906.

    The ship sank in a storm, only to be rediscovered in Lake Ontario more than 100 years later.
