Dan , The E.B. Barber was the first ` new ` modern laker ` that ACR had built up to her launch in February of 1953 at Portship in Thunder Bay . I`m guessing that at the same time they decided to try out a newly designed tri color livery scheme . By the late ` 50s , the idea was dropped , probably due to attendant costs and the constant touching up it would have needed . By the time the E.B.Barber was converted to a SU in 1964 , the company had already decided to go with the white on the forecastle and stern .
