The sinking of the Favorite

Life guards and professional swimmers who had worked to save the lives of those on board the Favorite, stand on top of the sunken boat in Lake Michigan on July 28, 1927. The Favorite was an excursion steamer that would take boaters from Lincoln Park and drop them off at Municipal Pier (later called Navy Pier).
