The Second Generation Great Lakes 1929 - 1936.
Production of Great Lakes started 1929, these are the first 2T-1A (first generation) Great Lakes. They had a variety of engines - Cirrus, Warner, Menascos and Ranger. The company went out of business and production ceased in 1936 during the great depression. These aircraft are factory aircraft and should not be mixed up with plans built aircraft constructed from plans sold by Harvey Swack (approx 1960 on).
