SS South American & SS North American at Dock, Holland Michigan, 1940s linen postcard
The steamers South American and North American at Holland Michigan circa 1940s.
The South American was built in 1914 for the Chicago, Duluth & Georgian BayTransit Co. of Detroit. It was in service for over 50 years before being sold for use as a floating dormitory, and eventually scrapped in 1992.
Built in 1913 for the same company, The North American had a history of running aground through its history, finally doing so in 1967 and sinking in 200 ft of water.
