A Walk Along Old Lake Street
Imagine you're a photographer in the early 1900s. Starting from the corner of M22 and Lake Street, walk west toward Lake Michigan. What photos would you take?
This series of photos, many of them from postcards, show views along Lake Street in Arcadia, Michigan from the 1900s to 1930s. The photographs are arranged by their position along Lake Street from east to west from M22 to the furniture factory near Lake Michigan.
