model name / number: Belle Isle
The six postcards from over a century ago show just how special of a place Belle Isle was to Detroit’s in the early 1900s.

Back then, the island had many cool attractions for the time.

Five of the cards are dated 1910, while one is dated 1909. All of them have the Ben Franklin one cent stamp on the back.

Here’s a list of the six locations shown on the cards:

—The Newsboys Fountain
—Horticulture Building
—The Belle Isle Bridge
—Bath House
—Chidlren’s Playground
—Belle Isle Pavilion

As you can see from the photos, all six are in decent shape.
