Lake Minnetonka Minn and the Steam Boats

Part of our collection of vintage postcards are ones that involve my husband's family history. He grew up in an area called Lake Minnetoka and Excelsior, Minnesota. For awhile we collected postcards from this area. Today I am showing the first of many. This one shows the Steam Boat Docks at Big Island Park on Lake Minnetonka, Minn Operated by Twin City Lines which was a rail and bus company .

The postcard shows women in long dresses and wearing hats and men in their good suits.

This post card is # 621 V. O. Hammon Pub. Co. Minneapolis and Chicago copyrighted 906 by Sweet.

Back of postcard is postmarked June 6 1910 St. Paul Minnesota and addressed to Mr. Fred Weaver Shelby Ohio.

The written message is
Hello Fritzie

Condition is very good with a little wear on the corners. Beautiful colors. A true treasure of a past time in Minnesota history.
