Lake Michigan shipwreck found after 112 years

This photo provided Thursday June 24, 2010, by Great Lakes Shipwreck Research shows the gangway under the boiler house of the wooden steamship L.R. Doty found off the Milwaukee, Wis. shoreline. Divers say the Doty, which sank more than a century ago in a violent Lake Michigan storm, appears to have been perfectly preserved by the cold fresh waters. It was carrying a cargo of corn from South Chicago to Ontario, Canada when it sank in October 1898. (AP Photo/Great Lakes Shipwreck Research) NO SALES
