Suttons Bay … before the harbor

Suttons Bay Aerial before Harbor by UpNorth Memories - Don Harrison

I’m always happy when it’s a slow news day and I can wander through Don Harrison’s incredible collection of Northern Michigan postcards. He has hundreds of cool Leelanau ones and I always learn something new as a result.

Today I learned that Suttons Bay hasn’t had that great marina (modern aerial photo) for as long as I thought. It was apparently built in 1962! (link)  Be sure to check it out larger and you can also order postcards and other items from Don’s Up North Memories collection!

    You’re welcome, Mark. I love stuff like this. When you see this photo, you can see why that old warehouse behind the Bay Theatre is sited where it it – that was a very undesirable piece of swampfront!
