Exact in Relation to Origin
Out; Faucets, Doors
A model of the "Greater Detroit"
and the "Greater Cleveland," sis-
ter steamboats of the Detroit and
Cleveland Navigation company, has
been placed upon exhibition for the
winter in the lower fByer of the
East Engineering building.
The model is an exact scale re-
plica of the two 550-foot sidewheel-
er ships which daily sail Lake Erie
between Detroit and Buffalo. Every
detail of construction in the larger
boats is carefully carried out in the
model. . .
There are 26 tiny parlors with
baths, \130 staterooms with toilets,
and 600 staterooms all minutely
reproduced, even to the metal fau-
cets in the bathtubs.
One side of the model is cut
away allowing the construction and
inner details of the ship to be ob-
served. Rafters and supporting
beams are in place, and the res-
taurant with its miniature stools
and shiny coffee dispenser are
In the parlors there are rugs,,
chairs, pictures, and divans. The
banister of the stairway leading,
down into the hull of the boat is
reproduced and the mighty en-
gines, the coal bin, and the storage
rooms there are all carefully de-
On the first floor the ticket office
with its grated window and iron
railings, gold gilted, are in a little
room lighted by the grey light of
artificially glassed portholes. State-
rooms with tiny bunks, upper and
lowers, open off this room by doors
with pinheads for knobs.
On the outside of the boat, life
preservers,'rafts, lifeboats, whistles,
searchlights and rigging are labor-
ously constructed in Lilliputian
style. Deck chairs of lazy back
and simple collapsable types are
placed near the wire deck rail.
On the deck, too, there are tiny
ventilators, coils or rope, minia-
ture fire axes and games tables.;
The smokestacks of the model,
painted a shiny black, rise below
the rigging which includes rope'

The crows nest, with a pilot's

One of the most painstaking job-;
in building this model was the
construction of the tiny block and
tackle setups for raising and low-
eri the miniature life boats. This
was hone by using string for ,rope
and very small, but operating pul-
leys, so that the tiny boat hangs
ready for. instant use in exactly
the same manner as do the life
boats upon the mother ship.
The model boat was shipped to
the Transport library of the engin-
eering school from New York where
it had been on exhibit during the
past summer, and docking an~d
handling of the model was in the
hands of Prof._ John S. Worley,
curator of the library.
