This image is a digitalized copy of an old slide. The original photographer left some data on the back.
Written in pencil:
- Two freighters heading into Lake St. Clair
- SK (I am not sure what these markings mean. I am assuming it was a way for the photographer to determine the batch of photos.)
Of course, I would love more information on this photo. Are the children with the photographer? Were they just spending a day on the shore? Where was the freighters heading? Was this a normal day for the ships?
I am never satisfied. I want to know the whole story.
Tell me, what do you think?
The photo is actually a digitalized version of a slide. The original photographer left some information on the back. I love when people add little notes.
The photo is dated 7-27-1957 with the notes Belle Isle Fountain, Detroit.
I am a Michigander. I cannot believe I have never seen this fountain in person. I did a little research on the Belle Isle Fountain which is actually called the James Scott Memorial Fountain. The fountain was constructed in 1925.
Yes, I added the fountain to my ever growing bucket list of things to see in Michigan.
Have you seen the James Scott Memorial Fountain in person? Tell me your thoughts.
Until next time…peace.
