Portage Lake Postcards

Portage Lake – Pinckney, Mich., postmarked 1947. Judging from the opposing shoreline scene, and the short dock lengths (denoting deep water at the shore), I believe this is a scene on the west side of the lake, south of the Bluff. The sailboat moored at the dock behind the canoe is named “Dot-Dee.”

Portage Lake, Dexter, Mich., circa 1940’s, showing the southwest shoreline. A young boy sits beside the dock in front of a willow tree, fishing.

Note the photographer’s number “L-1511.” I have several cards from this photographer in my collection, all from the 1940’s, and all taken on the southwest end of Portage Lake.
