TASHMOO DETROIT TASHMOO STEAMER photo picture print photograph for sale. TASHMOO STEAMER Tashmoo Detroit Great Lakes Steamer photo print photograph picture for sale. This TASHMOO DETROIT STEAMSHIP sepia toned professionally restored black and white photo picture print is made from the original black and white vintage historic image of this historic Tashmoo Great Lakes Steamer on The Detroit River in Port Huron, 1906. "
The Tashmoo was a sidewheeler steamboat on Lake St. Clair and Lake Huron. It was famous for being one of the fastest ships, at the time, on the Great Lakes. The Tashmoo was the first ship constructed in 1900 and was launched on December 31, 1899. It was built by the Detroit Shipbuilding Company in Wyandotte, Michigan for Detroit's White Star Line. The Tashmoo was nicknamed the "White Flyer" and, because of the number of windows on the ship, the "Glass Hack." The Tashmoo's regular route was from Detroit to Port Huron, Michigan. It made several stops along the way, including at its namesake, Tashmoo Park. On December 8, 1927, the Tashmoo snapped its moorings during a gale and starting drifting up the Detroit River. It collided with a ferry and was found further upstream, stopped by the Belle Isle Bridge. Two tugboats pulled the Tashmoo away from bridge, but the cables broke again and the ship once again headed for the bridge. The ship was 10 yards away from the bridge before the tugboats were able to get the Tashmoo secured again. The ship was eventually repaired.

On June 18, 1936, the Tashmoo struck a submerged rock as it was leaving Sugar Island. The ship was able to dock in Amherstburg, Ontario and be evacuated before it sank in 18 feet of water. It was eventually scrapped. It was entered into the National Maritime Hall of Fame in 1985." This is a wonderful historic photo of The Tashmoo filled to the brim with passengers. In line behind it is The IDLEWILD and another excusion steamer behind it.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
