Thunder Bay is located on the shores of Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes, and is the most populous city in Northwestern Ontario. Established as a fur trading post in the early 19th century, today Thunder Bay is an important transportation and cargo hub thanks to its central location linking Eastern and Western Canada. Remnants of its history can be seen at Fort William Historical Park, where visitors can experience a reconstruction of a North West Company fur trading post. Thunder Bay's central location has helped it become a relatively important centre of air transportation, with the Thunder Bay International Airport being a fairly busy facility despite the city's small size of just over 100,000 people.
