Street View of Arcadia: A Walk Along Lake Street

Imagine you're a photographer in the early 1900s. Starting from the corner of Sixth Street (M22) and Lake Street, walk west toward Lake Michigan. What photos would you take? This tour uses a series of photos, most of them from postcards, to show views along Lake Street in Arcadia, Michigan from the 1900s to 1930s.

This tour has two versions: A longer version broken up into neighborhoods with extra views of each neighborhood and a shorter version with fewer details that might be easier to use to "experience" the walk.
