Mackinac Island nd (1911?) Oblong 2.5 x 4, color image of the ship in the water with a little bit of land in the distance, caption reads "North-West Mackinac Island Mich." Heavily scratched, paper backing of the image is chipped and missing small pieces affecting the "photo" of the ship, backing paper is torn and missing pieces, partial stamped name of "Pyrophoto," address almost obliterated but it is in New York. The North West and its sister ship the North Land started operation in 1894 out of Buffalo, NY. They specialized in seven day cruises with ports of call in Cleveland, Detroit, Mackinac Island, Sault Ste. Marie, Duluth and West Superior, Wisc. (home base). In 1911, the North West was destroyed by fire at Buffalo. It was eventually cut in two and lengthened and was renamed the "Maplecourt." It was sunk with all hands when it was torpedoed by the Germans in WWI. Scarce.
