Overview


Cradled in the East and West Arms of the Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City is nationally known as the Cherry Capital of the World, and locally known as a four-season playground with a rich agricultural heritage and a thriving, urban vitality. Since settlers first populated the area in the late 19th century, the Traverse City community has cherished and cultivated its natural resources, from the abundant fruit orchards and sparkling waters to the lumber and fuel industries that have provided economic growth. The city's pioneering spirit and strong sense of civic pride have only flourished with the passage of time. This book serves as a visual tour of Traverse City's history, exploring the community's agricultural, industrial, and social origins. Through a rare collection of vintage postcards, author C.S. Wright takes readers on an illustrated journey through the eras of development and influence that have contributed to Traverse City's distinctive culture and character.

Beautifully done, this book is a welcome addition to any library. From the binding to the postcards and captions, all of which are between 150 and 250 words, this complements other books on the area. Frankly, I have purchased several of these as gifts for friends and they have all been quite pleased with it.
