Photo Number 1671

For the next week or so we will look at some Mystery Real Photo Postcards.  Some of them are real mysteries and others I know where they were taken.  This one is from the Flea Market in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Mystery One
A car and some cottages. The smoke might becoming out of a central bath house or sauna.  I do know where this one is from…can you guess?
Mystery One DL Flea Market 1939 Pontiac
U Need A Rest Cabins On US31 Manistee Mich
My Dad thinks the car is a 1939 Pontiac.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy's Dad:
1940 Chrysler Saratoga


  1. On this website, about ten photos down is the same postcard.

    This flickr photo site shows some other photos - (move back and forward for other shots)

    I think the same car is these photos too.

    1. My Dad thinks this a 1940 Chrysler Saratoga - it had the "ugly" radiator and the "suicide doors".

  2. Fun photo and info from IG

  3. Well, I guess this place was once known far and wide! The power of postcards ;)

  4. The Sunny Shores Resort looked a lot like this with cabins along the lake and trailers in the back. When I sold my one cabin to the late wife's sisters they tore it down and built a new one. Now people have replaced their cabins with double wide trailers and it looks like a mess. Our cabin had been a building that had been brought over on the ice and then added on to.
