- Upscale 2x2662x4380
This is a late nineteenth-century travel guide largely aimed at the recreational traveler. Descriptions of destinations from Mackinac Island to Traverse City and Omena emphasize their scenic and historical interest. There are several photographs of tourist attractions, as well as picturesque views associated with the sites described; these range from images of Chippewa netting whitefish near Sault Ste. Marie to the Imperial Hotel in Petoskey. In the entry for St. Ignace, photographs of pertinent art work from outside the area accompany historical information about Father Jacques Marquette. Chicago and Battle Creek are also described in glowing terms, and one entry is devoted to the English fur trader, Alexander Henry. Advertisements for several hotels and steamship lines appear at both the beginning and end of this pamphlet.
