I made a painting of this ship a few years back. It was sailing in a cloudy night sky.

Someone is color blind as the water is blue, the sky is a hazy light blue and the trees are covered with dark green leaves. Certainly at least a few months before Nov. but that is not a problem with me. Given the ship's demise, a historical photo of some significance.

Jacob,the date on the Kodak slide says Nov 58.I know that it might not be in november,but Port Huron was one of her last ports, so I went with what is imbossed into the slide-thanks,Fred

Owing to the capture date( Nov 1958), and the obvious black and white appearence of the snap, i think i woud be very difficult to comment on the colour of the trees.
If it is coloured then it has faded enough over the years to give it the b/w look.
Either way the tree's look grey

I don't think this photo was taken in November, based on the color of the trees in the background. Most of them appear to be green and that is very uncommon here in Michigan.
