Historical Perspective -
The aftermath of the sinking of the Saltie Monvovia, hit by the Royalton off Thunder Bay at Alpena, on Thursday June 25, 1959 - John G. Mackay
The Norman W Foy picked up the 29 crew members of the Monrovia, and took them to Detroit. While passing Port Huron, the Westcott mail boat took one member of the US Public Health Service, and three members of the US Immigration Department out to the Foy and put them on board. I had the opportunity to go along on the ride and take these pictures.
