Going through old photos



In 1976, there was a tour of the Great Lakes by tall ships, as part of the festivities around the U.S. Bicentennial. My family went to Marine City (along the St. Clair River) to see them, then drove down to Belle Isle in Detroit to see them again a couple of hours later. My mom took this photo of me watching a ship motor down the river—there was not enough wind or seas for them to have the sails up. They probably would've had sails up a few miles north where Lake Huron funnels into the St. Clair River. Boy, would THAT have been something to see.

I want to say, now that I've been poking around on the Internet, that the ship in the photo might be the Norwegian Ship Christian Radich. I can't say for sure as the resolution in my original photo is not good enough, but I'm almost certain the ship was part of the Great Lakes tour.

Yes, I actually did own a fishing cap advertising an American brand of beer. I was just 14! I was still finding myself!
