Saturday was the 100th anniversary of: “There’s A Ship In My Yard”.  - Geof Kusch
Atikokan.jpg (61124 bytes)

On August 17, 1913, the whaleback steamer Atikokan lost steerage as it was downbound in the St. Clair River at Marine City.  The Atikokan came out of the water and came to rest with its bow resting well out of the water on land.  The crash scene was at the current site of the Marine City water treatment plant.  At the time, the grounding was just downstream of the famous Pesha Photographic Art Studio and Brake Marine Reporting Agency.  Two small out buildings were destroyed, but there were no injuries.  The attached picture was taken by Lena Pesha, who grabbed one of her late husband’s cameras and ran out to record the event.  The Atikokan was refloated with the assistance of local tug boats and sustained almost no damage.
