Detroit Steamer

Scavenged Shorpy for shots of the excursion steamer Tashmoo and found quite a few of them.

Some views of the steamer Tashmoo @ Detroit, 1900.

Here’s 1901.

Here she is @ Tashmoo Park.

Circa 1912, with two other ships, the Owana and the City Of Detroit III.

Heading upriver, circa 1901.

At the dock with the Idlewild.

Docking @ Port Huron

Read the story, from the Detroit News archives; or a short article @ Wikipedia

@ Amazon, from the Images Of America series of books, here’s one about the ship and the similarly-named park on Harsen’s Island.
