Take a look back in time with this slide show to the Glory days of the great cross lake passenger liners. Cross lake steamers were an important part of transportation in the 1st part of the 20th century. These luxurious ships where fitted with interiors on par with the Titanic. They ran year round in all types of weather. Voyages departed the ports of Muskegon, Grand Haven and Holland Michigan for Chicago.
