Mystery Boat Appears in Bowie Race Track Infield

Cabin Cruiser in the lake in the infield (The Baltimore Sun)
March 9, 1955 (58 years ago today):  At dawn, a boat became visible in the lake on the infield at the Bowie Race Track.  No one knew how it got there, and no one claimed ownership.  "Bowie at Sea over Cruiser," was the title of the story in the Baltimore Sun.  "Boat in Lake Mystery at Bowie," was the title for the story in the Washington Post.
