If you haven’t already make sure to take a look at last week’s Shorpy photograph. It’s amazing how many people showed up to watch the launch. Watercraft building is much different today in to many ways to list. 1912 was a much simpler time but I wonder if what happened on April 15th of that same here had anything to do with the large turnout.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “The Launch: 1912“:
November 9, 1912. Wyandotte, Michigan. “Steamer Seeandbee, the launch.” Thrilling denouement of the scene glimpsed earlier here. 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
