City of Munising Auto Ferry, Mackinaw City, Mich.

This clearly marked ship is the City of Munising, once owned and operated by the Pere Marquette Railroad and converted by the state of Michigan to ferry autos across the Straits of Mackinac.

While there are passengers clearly visible on the decks of the ship, the amount of distance the hull is above the normal waterline indicates this ship is probably near empty.

This card was used, and is dated June 21, 1939.
