Ice breaking – 1928

Another old photo today. This one dates to 1928, again from the Detroit News or Detroit Times archives.

The caption on the back of this one reads as follows:

    Str. LaSalle breaking its way through ice to the Windsor dock, 1-15-28.

    Taken from Str. Cadillac

A neat view of the old ferry bashing its way through the ice.

Interesting to see the backside of the Windsor Ferry Docks. Most of the pictures or photos of it show the land side.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday.
