In the middle of the country and the middle of the continent, a Great Lakes state and a great Midwestern center, Michigan is the sum of America past, present, and future--a state in which yesterday’s history and tomorrow’s promise endlessly vie for pride of place. This book offers visions of Michigan in all its glory, past and present--from Native American settlements to trading outposts, from farming riches to vacation splendors, from its artistic heritage to its automotive muscle. Here images of yesterday and today appear side by side--state landmarks and architecture, capitol buildings and icons of pop culture--bringing to life the transformations of time and history, and the marvels that persist. Photographs and postcards, brochures and advertisements document the history of Michigan as it lives in pictures and memory, a stalwart of the American heartland.

Michigan Yesterday & Today is a window to the past and a mirror to the present. Displaying historical images side by side with modern photography, Robert Domm presents the people, places, and activities that have defined Michigan through the ages: lumberjacks and miners, Native Americans and CCC workers, football teams and artisans; pine forests and cherry orchards, tulip festivals and ice fishing towns; fly fishing and maple sugaring, yacht racing and auto manufacturing; and much more. Turn the pages for a nostalgic look at how far we have come over the years—and how much has remained the same.About the Author:
