Treasure Ships of the Great Lakes

Jim Barrett of St. Paul, Minnesota, writes: “After researching the CITY OF BANGOR, sunk in Lake Superior in 1926—and how its cargo of new automobiles was salvaged—I’m wondering what other treasures have been recovered from the Great Lakes?” Although parts of Lakes Ontario, Huron and Superior are so deep that salvage has seldom been an option, Lakes Michigan and Erie have relinquished some valuable cargoes from their shallow depths.
