And these little rigs (1946 Cars) go to market
Detroit, Mich....New 1946 Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler, and Buick cars are driven aboard the seamer Charles Donnelly under their own power, for shipment to Cleveland and Buffalo. Notice the new design on the Freighter which has a top deck similar to the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. Auto production enables the boats to carry a full load. The ice flow being broken up on the Great Lakes makes the operation of these steamers practical.
