This striking photograph captures the moment of sponsorship for the cargo ships S.S. A.D. MacTier and S.S. F.P. Jones on March 8, 1913. The image features two prominent sponsors, Mr. A.D. MacTier and Mr. F.P. Jones, standing proudly before their namesake vessels. Both men are dressed in formal attire, with MacTier wearing a dark suit and Jones donning a fur-lined coat. The American flag is prominently displayed behind them, symbolizing their patriotism and connection to the maritime industry. The ships, which are docked in a picturesque location, are adorned with banners bearing the names of their sponsors. The launching of these freighters was a significant event in the shipping industry of the early 20th century, and the sponsors' presence added an air of importance and prestige to the occasion. Surrounded by a group of men in various maritime uniforms, MacTier and Jones are flanked by a bouquet of flowers, adding a touch of nature to the industrial scene. The ships, with their tall masts and cargo holds, dominate the background, while the men in the foreground appear small in comparison, emphasizing the grand scale of the shipping industry. This historic photograph, taken as a dry plate negative on glass 8 x 10 inches, is a testament to the rich maritime heritage of America during the 1910s. The image, from the Detroit Publishing Company collection at the Library of Congress, is a valuable piece of historical documentation and a fascinating glimpse into the past.
