dc.descriptionBlanchard Brothers built Detroit for their own account and Detroit traded for fifteen years. In 1879, Blanchard Brothers sold Detroit to agents in San Francisco and by the early 1880s, Detroit was mostly sailing up and down the west coast with coal. Stripped of yards on the mizzen in 1891, Detroit continued to sail for four more years. Obviously, this photograph dates from 1891-1895—because in 1895 Detroit became a coal barge in Acapulco, and then disappeared from any documentation.
