Eagle Boat submarine chaser, constructed by the Ford Motor Company at the Rouge River Plant, Dearborn during World War 1, is seen on a trial run. First view shows it on the Detroit River. It passes another boat. Heavy black smoke rises from its funnel. The boat passes the Ford Company Rouge River Plant, on shore as it goes up the Rouge River. (Note: The Rouge River Plant was completed just in time for Ford to start building these subchasers for the U.S. Navy in World War 1. In fact, these boats were the first products of the Rouge River Plant -- before any automobiles were produced there.)
