A blush of rose and plum glows in the early Spring trees in the background of this depiction of the S.S. Kewadin, a 1097 Edwardian liner moored in Douglas, Michigan.

"The SS KEEWATIN, the last Edwardian liner, has been a tourist attraction for the last 44-years at Douglas, Michigan on the east shore of the Kalamazoo River, a few miles from Lake Michigan. Built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company in Scotland in 1907 KEEWATIN ran continuously for almost 60 seasons with her sister SS ASSINIBOIA between Port Arthur / Fort William and Port McNicoll in Ontario, Canada, until retired in 1966. R.J. Peterson and his wife, a local marina-owning couple in Douglas, took out a personal loan to buy the vessel, saving her from scrap and restored KEEWATIN’s interiors, opening to the public for paid tours in 1967. Skyline International Development Co. signed papers to acquire and move the 350-foot SS KEEWATIN from Peterson’s Tower Marina, some 550 miles to Port McNicoll, Ontario, its original home port from 1907 to 1965. The City of Port McNicoll plans to renovate the 104-year-old steamship and feature her as part of a waterfront park. It departed Douglas, May 28th, 2013.
