This week’s #ThrowbackThursday post is a 1904 photochrom print by the Detroit Photographic Company, which produced millions of its popular photochrom postcards from 1898 until the firm liquidated in 1932. The present Prison Ships Martyrs Monument, which the U.S. Senate is considering making a national monument, was unveiled four years later in 1908.
