Steamer Eastern States – 1910


Steamer Eastern States – 417 Published by A. C. Dietsche, Detroit, Mich, and Frankfort, Germany.   Made in Germany.

The twin steamers Eastern States and Western States, owned by the Detroit and Buffalo Line, are among the largest, handsomest and fastest passenger ships on the Great Lakes. They are licensed to carry 3,500 passengers, have a speed in mid-lake of 20 miles an hour and make the 260 mile trip over the Buffalo-Detroit run in 14 hours, practically carrying all passengers between these ports during the summer months.

Not mailed.   Addressed to: Miss B. Deming, Eloise Country Home, Wayne, Mich.

“Buffalo, N.Y.  5-10-’10  Dear friend, Well how are you?  I don’t suppose you will answer my last card so I will send you another.  Lee [Weaver]”

Again, not sure what is going on here.  Was Grandpa two timing, Grandma?   Who was B. Deming?   Why was she living at Eloise? It was a sanatorium.  Many questions.

Grandpa Lee worked on the Eastern States during summers.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
