Quantcast

Postcard from the SS America “Booth Line”

This postcard of the passenger and delivery ship America is from some point between 1902, when the Booth Steamship Line acquired the vessel, and 1928, when it sunk near Isle Royale.

More info about the vessel can be found in two other Perfect Duluth Day posts — “SS America, 1925” and “Remembering America and her life on the water.”

That is the only historic shipwreck I have both seen with my own eyes (you can paddle above it and see it below the water) and also talked to a person who had steered it when it was still running. It was a special boat to many people.
