Lake Survey maps that document waterborne transportation on the Great Lakes in the late nineteenth century. These highly accurate nautical charts reveal the inherent dangers posed by rocky shorelines and narrow passages. For more information about these images or waterborne transportation on the Great Lakes, contact Wisconsin’s Water Library (http://aqua.wisc.edu/waterlibrary/) or the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute (http://seagrant.wisc.edu/).
