1/21 - Historical Perspective - Chuck Truscott

Philip R. Clarke in the Straits of Mackinac in February, 1972 waiting for the Mackinaw (WAGB 83) to escort her and the Cason J. Calloway through the Straits. The wind chill that day was greater than 45 below.

USCGC Tahoma passing through Round Island Passage in the Straits of Mackinac about 1940. She was later requisitioned for war duty on the East Coast.

The lumber hooker Philateus Sawyer apparently in the St. Mary's River. I have no date on this but the vessel burned in Toledo in 1922, so I am guessing the picture was taken in 1919 or 1920.
