Shorpy Saturday – A Toast: 1940

By Jeffrey Buck

“A picture is worth a thousand words” is very fitting when it comes to this weekends photograph. The Detroit Yacht Club continues to be a hot spot during the summer months for all ages. A lot has changed since 1940 but on the other hand a lot hasn’t.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “A Toast: 1940“:


Summer 1940. “‘Venetian Night’ party at the Detroit Yacht Club, whose members represent the wealthier class of manufacturers. Commodore and girls drinking.” Happy New Year from Shorpy! Photo by Arthur Siegel.
