What do you see in your mind's eye when you hear the words “Michigan winter”?

Do you see soft blankets of snow in the countryside...cars stuck off the road...icicles hanging from tree branches...downtowns covered in snow...getting snowblind while driving...kids sledding down hills...it could be any number of things, because Michigan winters experience 'em all.

Even so, our seemingly endless supply of towns, villages, cities, and communities have a wintry look all their own.

Take a trip through some Michigan winters by scrolling the photo gallery below. There are fifty vintage pictures showing Michigan winters, most of them well over 100 years ago. Street scenes, activities, shoveling, working, country scenes, snowbound areas...and so much more!
