Ann Arbor Ferry Dock in Manistique, MI

The slip and apron was built well enough that it survived into the 21st Century. But looking at a 1953 aerial photo indicates that there used to be a lot more land on the west side of the dock. At least I caught a satellite image while there is still a spit of land left. The 2005 SPV Map indicates the ferry service was Ann Arbor to Frankfort, MI. The railroad was Manistique & Lake Superior, an AA subsididary, and it came down from the north.
