Steamer Eastern States – 417 Published by A. C. Dietsche, Detroit, Mich, and Frankfort, Germany. Made in Germany.
The twin steamers Eastern States and Western States, owned by the Detroit and Buffalo Line, are among the largest, handsomest and fastest passenger ships on the Great Lakes. They are licensed to carry 3,500 passengers, have a speed in mid-lake of 20 miles an hour and make the 260 mile trip over the Buffalo-Detroit run in 14 hours, practically carrying all passengers between these ports during the summer months.

Again, not sure what is going on here. Was Grandpa two timing, Grandma? Who was B. Deming? Why was she living at Eloise? It was a sanatorium. Many questions.
Grandpa Lee worked on the Eastern States during summers.
