An early view of the Amherstburg, Ontario Naval Base on the Detroit River. Traffic was generally busy in this section of the River as the deep water was close in to the Canadian shore. The schooner General Wilkinson makes its way up current, with another naval schooner under construction in the Navy Yard.
