EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the historic moment of the launching party for the cargo ships S.S. A.D. MacTier and S.S. F.P. Jones, on March 8, 1913. The image, taken at the Detroit Publishing Company shipyard in Wyandotte, Houghton County, Michigan, United States, shows a large group of people gathered outside, including shipbuilders Edwin H. Husher and William A. Livingstone, and the ships' namesakes, A.D. MacTier and F.P. Jones. The ships, built for Detroit Publishing Company, are seen in their dry dock, ready to be launched into the water. The launching party marks a significant milestone in the maritime and shipping industries of the United States, as these freighters were essential for transporting goods and supplies across the country's waterways. The Detroit Publishing Company was a leading publisher of postcards and views during the early 20th century, and this photograph is a testament to their role in documenting American industrial history. The dry plate negative glass 8 x 10 in image is now part of the collections at the Library of Congress, providing a valuable glimpse into the past and the country's rich maritime heritage.
