Cannon on Campus Martius –


Cannon on Campus Martius, Detroit, Mich.  A-17408.  Published by Wolverine News Co., Detroit, Mich.  Made in U.S.A.

This cannon is in front of the City Hall and was captured in Perry’s Victory over the English on Lake Erie in the year 1813.

This post card was never written.   It is as clean as the day it was purchased.  It is a great example of Campus Martius in the early 20th Century.
