Cedar and Lumber Docks – 1911


Cedar and Lumber Docks, Thunder Bay, Alpena, Mich.    Published by A. C. Dietsche, Detroit, Mich.  Printed in Germany.  188535

Post marked Alpena, Mich.  Sep 17, 1911.   Addressed to Mrs. [Effie Lee] Weaver, 94 Tireman Ave. Detroit, Mich.

“Trip was beautiful.  Sick for 2 hrs going over the Bay.  The boat lays up here for one hour.  Just grand on the water.  Will send you postal on next stop.  With love.  Mrs. O & Florence.”

No idea who Mrs. O was.  Not sure who this particular Florence was.   Interesting that she would say it was just “grand on the water” and “sick for 2 hrs going over the Bay” on the same card.    Lumber was king in Michigan in the early 20th century!
