Alpena & Northeast Michigan Postcard Collection


The majority of the postcards in this collection were gathered by the Besser Museum for Northeast Michigan. As part of a collaborative effort to preserve archival materials, this collection was transferred to the Alpena County Library. Individual Postcards that have since been donated to the Library have been added to this collection. The donor name, when known, has been added to the record. The number preceding the title is only indicating the numerical order of scanning. It does not pertain to the image itself.
