Edward Beebe’s Historic Leelanau Photographs by Jack Hobey showcases crisp black-and-white photographs that were taken over a century ago, from 1909 to 1915. Many images appeared as Beebe’s photo postcards, issued in relatively small quantities.
The 154-page book offers highly detailed photographs from Leland, Suttons Bay and North Manitou Island – including loggers, sawmills, businesses, schools, assorted buildings, groups, boats and the shoreline. Hobey accompanies the graphics with a biographical and contextual account of the time Beebe spent in the area, putting the photos in a chronological and geographical order.
This is a carefully crafted volume that wonderfully captures the flavor of a bygone era in our state’s past. It’s a great book for Michigan historians or connoisseurs of exceptional photography.
