There was a common theme running through the photos from the past 19 years on this day, having to do with history in one form or another. The first archive shot was featured in 1999, of The Old Country Store on the main street in Copper Harbor. I’m not sure how long this store has been there, but I remember going there for “stick candy” and “rock candy” as a kid. It still looks the same inside to this day, like an old country store.

The daily photo in 2003, was shared by Kevin Musser of a family vacation in the U.P. during a much slower paced time in 1947. Much has changed in the world since then, but time at a cottage, whether you own it or rent it, still gives you a more relaxing, slower pace to unwind on vacation.

The 2006 photo is a familiar sight, although it was taken at the 1914 dedication of the Douglass Houghton monument in Eagle River on August 12th of that year. The monument sits right next door to our Webmaster, Charlie’s home, and has been lovingly cared for through the years.

Fast forward to the present with a photo from Joe Kirkish that he snapped while waiting in line during the Hancock construction detour. He focused on the wonderfully kept up “vintage” homes along the route, including the sandstone one on the right in the bottom photo. It’s nice to see the historic look of the older homes preserved through the years.

For today’s viewing pleasure, we have a rerun of a Pasty Cameo that was posted the same day as the dedication photo above. Detailing three monuments dedicated to Douglass Houghton.

I like The Old Country Store. Put a restaurant in there and you have the first Cracker Barrel store in the UP.

Seems all the houses around Palmer are pink from the ore dust!

Nice to see the old houses preserved and appreciated. Many are lost each year to fire or someone thinking a parking lot is a better option.
