Portage Lake Postcards

Greetings from Portage Lake Mich., circa 1950’s. On what I believe to be the southwest shore, a number of young girls in 1950’s era bathing suits play in the water. It appears that the shoreline is shallow for a good distance. The CP-8-53 on the black border is likely the photographer’s mark, 8-53 being the likely date the photo was shot.

Big Portage Lake Pinckney Mich. Note the pergola with the bell on top at the shoreline. This unsent card marked with the photographer’s ID# L1514 shows only one cottage along the shoreline. I have six other cards that are from this same photographer, most of them showing the south or southwest shoreline.
