Description: Photo shows the Bruce Hudson unloading in the slip with part of one of the old buildings of the former Port Credit Brickyard in the background. Lloyd's Refinery was erected in 1932 on the site of the old Port Credit Brick Yard by L. B. Lloyd of Lloyd’s Tankers and went by the name of Lloyd Refineries Ltd. It consisted of a small crude Stilling Unit and nine storage tanks. The thruput, or amount of crude oil processed each day was 300 barrels which was converted to gasoline and fuel oils. The crude oil that Lloyd's Refinery used came from Toledo, through Chicago. Lloyd's had 3 tankers that carried the oil up the Welland Canal, across the lake to Port Credit. The tankers were Bruce Hudson, Joan Virginia, and the Roy K. Russel, and were pulled by three tugs, Ajax, Ethel, and Muscallonge. In 1936 the Bruce Hudson was in more trouble. On one of her trips the escort tug, Ethel, ran out of fuel oil and the Bruce was left at sea while the Ethel put into Port Hope for fuel. In the meantime, the s. s. Brulin came along an claimed the Bruce as salvage. Lloyds had to go to court to reclaim her.
