The Steamer Columbia downbound in the Detroit River. I converted this photo to a watercolor print. The original image was sent to me some time ago and regretfully I have lost the photographers name. If you are the owner of this image and can provide proof of ownership I will gladly post a photo credit or remove the image if so desired.
