Arrived on this Ship is about travel on the Great Lakes one hundred years ago. It is an album of ship postal cards from the first two decades of the twentieth century. More than just an album, author Hudson Keenan has written about historical events, technology of the day, and life styles as each individual card suggests. Ship views are divided by the types of vessels and travel locations on the Lakes. All five Great Lakes are represented with postcards from Canada and the United States. Keenan has included comments on card publishers and a special section on the US Marine Postal Service. Maps of the Great Lakes enable one to locate the general vicinity of each view. Original standard 3.5 by 5.5 inch postcards from the authors collection were used for the reproductions in this book.
