Boblo Island

Boblo Island

I bought this Boblo Island shirt on Ebay, from the original owner who told me he bought it when he was in 6th grade on a field trip, back in 1977. When I was in 6th grade we took a class trip to Boblo Island too…glad to hear it was a right of passage back then, too!

For those of you not from Metro Detroit, Boblo Island was a fantastic amusement park, located on an island which was technically in Ontario, Canada. To get to it, we Metro-Detroiters would ride a big ferry boat 18 miles to the island. It is a fond memory of most Detroiters of a certain age, though it has been closed since 1993.

The Shirt: Boblo Island Tourist T shirt, from 1977
