 Post subject: Historical Perspective in Photos
Unread postPosted: December 4, 2017, 3:15 pm 
Over the next months I will be posting photo's from my collection. some I took while working on the Charles M White as a deckhand then AB Watchman and finally as a wheelsman. Some were taken while a deckhand on the Samuel Mather.
I started off sailing in 1974 as a deckhand on the J R Sensibar. Because we ran mostly short trips on Lake Huron or Lake Erie and the fact that she had 30+ telescoping hatches, I was unable to take many photo's.
Many of the other photo's were taken by my father starting in the 1930's, mostly from under the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Shipping on the lakes has changed drastically from those wonderful days.
