Shorpy Saturday – Message From Mars: 1913

By Jeffrey Buck

Michiganders have historically flocked to upper Michigan in the summer months to take advantage of the many offerings of nature from the vast lakes to the miles of hiking trails. But as the weather turns to cold it still offers a place to escape. From cabin getaways to ice fishing, Michigan always finds away to really showcase the four seasons. I can only imagine the cold winter breeze off Lake Superior but the residents of Marquette  embrace the beauty of the UP year round.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Message From Mars: 1913“:
