Walkerville Ferry Dock – c. 1905

Today’s photo is from the Library of Congress collection. This shows the Ferry dock that was just at the foot of Devonshire, and the park just to the west. Roughly the area is where the large white silos are found today.

I’m thinking these might be the customs offices?

A nice shot of the Ariel. The Detroit – Walkerville ferry. It was in service from 1882 – 1922. Once it was retired from the Detroit – Walkerville run, it was sold to the State of Michigan, who used it after that on the Straights of Mackinac ferry service.

Have a good weekend everyone. I’m taking Monday off on account of a birthday. See you back here Wednesday.
