An old Detroit classic...Bob-Lo Island Amusement Park

Bob-Lo/Bob-lo Boat: Detroit's answer to New York's Coney Island, Bob-lo Island amusement park opened in 1898 and featured several attractions. However, the most popular and famous attractions were not the rides at the park, but the steamer boats that transported park goers from Detroit - the S.S. Columbia and the S.S. Ste. Claire, affectionately referred to as The Bob-Lo Boats.
