The very first ship on the upper Great Lakes, LaSalle’s Griffon, sailed only  a single voyage before disappearing beneath the waves. Since then several thousand other vessels, along with their crews, have met the same fate. Today these underwater treasures offer recreational divers great opportunities for adventure. The wrecks also offer historians, archaeologists and scientists a trove of well preserved time capsules to be studied and protected. This presentation offers great photographs and underwater video that examine the world of those committed to the deep.

From the dust and smoke of the nineteenth century, Detroit burst into the national spotlight in the early twentieth century. The automobile business was at full throttle, resulting in a city that grew faster than any other on the continent. Adding to the excitement, national Prohibition created a demand for alcohol that our Canadian neighbors gladly addressed. Rumrunning became the region’s second largest industry. Conventions loved Detroit, and so did organized crime. Boom town meets the Wild West.
