VIDEO: Travel Through 1950’s Michigan!
Here's a 15-minute video - looks like some kind of film featurette that may have been seen in movie theaters...not sure.
It shows what Michigan travel was like in the 1950's: it mentions Lansing, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and Grand Rapids. It shows a glimpse of Michigan Avenue facing west toward the Capitol building...the video also features segments on Michigan State University, Mackinac Bridge, Fort Michilimackinac, Red Barn Theater, Greenfield Village, Sault Ste. Marie, Mackinac Island, Marquette and more throughout Michigan.
It appears to be a short film to entice residents of other states like Illinois and Indiana to visit Michigan. Take a look at what 1950's Michigan looked like by clicking the video above!
