Loading the Great Whaleback, Chicago, Illinois Postcard
Restored by Scenesfromthepast.net from an original stereoview card circa 1890s. Vintage real photo Underwood stereoview card of Chicago grain elevator and dockworkers loading grain into a whaleback grain freighter ship (identified on the stern as “132 of Buffalo”) dockside – probably somewhere on the Chicago River. This unusual grain cargo ship is identified on its stern as “132 of Buffalo”. Chicago was the great shipping center for Midwestern farmers’ grain to the East Coast. Some of this grain was shipped by rail but a lot was also shipped in large capacity lake boats specially built to withstand the unpredictable Great Lakes weather and wind-driven high seas. The whaleback, one of these specially designed cargo ships, was designed by McDonald of Duluth. Minnesota. It was powered by steam and it’s whaleback shape made it very economical to run. They could withstand unharmed the heavy seas that could wash over the ship.
