Throwback Thursday: Just Chill

Since it’s summer, I couldn’t resist using a “throwback” of a picture I found of a cousin sun bathing while on vacation.

Capture

The above photo is of Geraldine Hobson Goebel, my 3rd cousin 4x removed (on my John “Raccoon” Miller line).  This photograph was in the Chicago Tribune in August of 1938.  Geraldine’s husband, Erwin John Goebel, was the passenger traffic manager for Georgian Bay Line.

The Georgian Bay Line was based in Chicago, Illinois and would take ships of tourists through the Great Lakes on different excursions.  In 1940, Erwin accompanied passengers on the maiden voyage of one the Georgian Bay Line ships that traveled from Chicago, to Mackinac Island, through the Soo Canal, and up to Isle Royale in Lake Superior.  Needless to say, Geraldine (and it looks like her friends) enjoyed the perks of Erwin’s job!
