I agree with the American. Remember seeing her laid up in Manistee Lake for years at the Bultema dock.

 Post subject: Boat ID on Chicago Postcard
Unread postPosted: July 30, 2021, 3:46 pm 
I was wondering if anyone can tell me the identity of the boat shown passing through the drawbridges at Chicago on this postcard? It is not postmarked but it appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. I thought maybe it was the American but perhaps somebody out there will have a better insight into its identity than I do. These are the best scans I could get off the postcard.
