Copper Country Vintage Postcards

My collection of colorized, black/white and color postcards from the turn of the century to the 1960's.  Featuring locations mainly in the Keweenaw but include other locations in Michigan's Upper Peninsula as well, enjoy.

Over 80 postcards and counting, including this one.
