Last week I brought you one side of a two-sided brochure done in the mid ’60′s to bring tourists to the Keweenaw. Today I bring you the second side, mostly consisting of a map of the county. A few interesting things to note however. It had been said many times that while the rest of the world moves on, the Copper Country seems trapped in a bygone era. While in a lot of ways this is true, the passage of time still takes its toll on the places along the Keweenaw – just at a much slower rate. A few photos that appear on this brochure (on both sides) show a Keweenaw much different then the one I know now. The photo of the “fisherman’s landmark” that appears on this side looks much different then the Gay stack of today. As well, the photo of the “mouth of the Tobacco River” shows a much older and rickety looking bridge then the modern concrete version that now sits here. Then there’s the coin-operated binoculars that are shown up on the Copper Harbor overlook. Long since removed, only the concrete pedestals remain today.
