SOUTH AMERICAN backing away from dock. Built at Ecorse, MI in 1914 for the Chicago, Duluth & Georgian Bay Transit Company (Georgian Bay Line) for passenger-only cruises.

Sold, fall, 1967 to Seamen's International Union. Taken to east coast and engines and boilers removed, but never used as intended at the seamen's school at Piney point, MD.
