I believe this is the C&O Midland on the left but not sure which Ann Arbor ferry on the right. Manitowoc, WI - Winter 1958-59 - from my family's collection.

She was later renamed the VIKING when modernized.
ANN ARBOR NO. 5 on the right.

There was at least a second ferry dock in town because Soo+Wisconsin Central had one a mile upriver by the peninsula. Back then, Manitowoc was still making boats. The ferry in the background is leaving the river from the Soo ferry doc.
