Introduction

 

The materials were collected by the late Captain Frank Hamilton. The collection is part of the

Charles E. Frohman Collection. Some of the materials were donated in 2006 by the Wisconsin

Maritime Museum.

 

Historical Note

 

Great Lakes passenger service began in the 1770s with ferry service across the Niagara River.

Ferry services expanded during the 1800s as a practical means of transportation. By the 1880s

Americans and Canadians were traveling for pleasure. The passenger vessel service grew

in response to the ever-increasing demands of the tourism industry. Competition for business led to

increased advertising, including the production of brochures, pamphlets, timetables, maps, and

other promotional pieces.

 

Scope and Content

 

This collection of Great Lakes travel and excursion brochures, pamphlets, and

timetables spans the years from 1891 to 1972. .The materials are primarily from the 1940s and

1950s. More than 100 companies are represented. The collection contains some materials from

passeneger service companies on other lakes and rivers in the eastern United States Most are

illustrated with colored photographs and/or drawings intended for the mass market. They were

designed to feature the natural beauty of the Great Lakes to potentional vacationers.

 

The collection is arranged alphabetically by the name of the company. When the company’s

name could not be determined, the title of the brochure was used. If listed, the year of publication

 is given. The number of duplicates is noted in parentheses.
