Photo Number 1627

These are snapshots from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.Itasca State Park Two  Maybe Dl Antiques

Two fellows by a lake.

I think they are at this place.

Itasca State Park Maybe  DL antiques

It looked familiar to me.

Lake Itasca

This is an old postcard of Lake Itasca and it says Park Rapids Minnesota…but this lake and Itasca State Park are about 22 miles from Park Rapids…no doubt this is just an advertising tool.  Everyone wants to have a State Park…I believe Park Rapids is their mailing address.

The cottage is the same as is the dock.  In the postcard there are some trees on the right…and they are missing from the snapshot.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again.


  1. Very pretty place.

  2. Amazing how those two pictures line up! Good eye!

    It always startles me, even when I know it is an old photograph, to see people dressed in suit and tie, out roughing it or at the park. I can't help but wonder what the man in the first photo was doing, down by the water's all seems so out of place, now.

  3. Looks like there is a third person in the top photo holding a bucket - presumably with water in it. I love the suspenders!
