Shorpy Saturday – James Beard: 1905

By Jeffrey Buck

With the recent news of Horace Dodge‘s steam yacht Delphine being put for sale at a staggering 38 million Euros (about $50 million), I thought this photograph was fitting. Boats have played a large part in the development of Detroit and Michigan as a whole. They continue to float along the many waterways this great state has to offer.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “James Beard: 1905“:

Circa 1905. “Port Huron, Michigan — Black River.” An array of interesting signage in this view. 8×10 glass negative, Detroit Publishing Co.
