Dexter, Michigan, postmarked 1965. The caption on the back of this chrome postcard view reads, “Main Street Dexter, Michigan ‘Gateway to the Lakes.’” The Marathon station is still on the south side, Standard gas station replaces Conoco on the north. The building where the Dexter Bakery sits today is painted with a “Bakery” sign in this view, and a Frigidaire Dealership occupies the corner building on Ann Arbor/Broad Street.
The edge of Monument Park Looking West was a popular spot for photographs of the village of Dexter.
