Saginaw: Labor and Leisure (MI) (Postcard History Series) by Roberta Morey

Saginaw boasts a rich and colorful history. After the early explorers and small Native American villages came the lumbermen, shanty boys, and a bustling commercial center. Later the coal, salt, and sugar beet industries replaced lumbering in the economy. Many of Saginaws businesses were known worldwide and are still important after more than 100 years. Saginaw was home to a bevy of famous and infamous characters. Among the early ruffians were Fabian Fournier (Saginaws Paul Bunyan), Silver Jack Driscoll, and the Opera House Rogue, Warren Bordwell. Saginaws more illustrious residents include King Clothier, Little Jake Seligman, educator Alice Freeman Palmer, boxer George Kid Lavigne, and many others. Many of the postcards in this book represent the businesses and personalities that made Saginaws distinctive character what it is today.
