Eagle Harbor Coast Guard surfmen and Keeper spotted the wreck as they brought back crew of shipwreck Maytham to the Station. Surfmen came back to Bangor to rescue crew who stayed at the Bergh's home. Chrysler and Whippet autos on board.
Anonymous5/4/2011 11:58:55 PMMy great-grandmother housed the crew and cared for them during the storm and after wards my grandpa helped drive the cars across the ice and into Copper Harbor.
Anonymous7/1/2011 12:56:06 PMI to have a different photo of this ship taken from aft looking forward of the main deck, showing cars buried in snow and one auto hanging over the port side. My father, Alfonse Lewy, a surfman was stationed and the eagle harbor CG life saving station at this time and was involved in the rescue of the crew as well. -- David Lewy
