Scope and Content

This .33 cubic foot collection is composed of 766 35 mm photographic slides of Great Lakes Vessels. These slides were taken from 1980 to 1993 by William P.

A large number of the slides were taken in the Soo area or on the St. Mary’s River near Round Island or Lime Island. The slides are arranged alphabetically in three binders.
