Lot-741-5: U.S. Coast Guard, WWII. Buck Great Lakes’ Ice. The country’s impatience to get war traffic flowing through the Great Lakes is revealed in this picture, taken from a Coast Guard patrol plane, of a tug leading ten freighters in a bow-on attempt to fight their way out of the harbor at Buffalo, New York. Transportation on the Lakes, a vital traffic artery, has been delayed by ice later than usual this year. U.S. Coast Guard Photograph. Courtesy of the Library of Congress.
