This is an original 1917 GAR WOOD MISS DETROIT II RPPC postcard from a Detroit estate. Its a real photograph measuring 3 3/8 x 5 3/8 and is by well known marine photography studio PESHA (see last image closeup). Miss Detroit II was Gar Woods first race boat, and this photo predates the Gar-Wood boat business as well as Chris-Craft by several years. It is literally his first race boat, we believe its a really interesting photograph documenting the earliest days of Detroit Gold Cup speedboats. We looked on the internet and could find only one photograph of Miss Detroit II, and it showed the opposite side of boat.
It is in 100% original condition, with just a tiny corner bend at upper left (see images). The item "1917 GAR WOOD MISS DETROIT II Real Photo Postcard Boat Race Speedboat Photograph" is in sale since Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
