Great Lakes freighter photos and history
The latest entry into the Small World Files is today's photo of the 100 year old Southdown Challenger upbound on the Detroit River just above the Ambassador Bridge. Mac of Detroit Bike Blog wondered if I'd seen these photos. I hadn't and spent a good long while poring through this amazing set of Southdown/St. Mary's Challenger photos that takes you all across the Great Lakes, under the Mackinac Bridge and even belowdecks.Be sure to read the rest of the fascinating history of this 100 year old steamer.
The photo above is from the Absolute Michigan Pool on Flickr. Be sure to read the history of this freighter too!
