Superior’s waters are cold but that doesn’t mean people don’t swim there. They’ve been doing it for a long, long time. As for Lake Michigan, with its more populated shoreline, beaches packed with swimmers have been common for decades.

A June 8th article on Mlive provides a photographic history of swimming in Michigan, on both Lakes Superior and Michigan.

View the historic photogaphs in the MLive article entitled, “See What a Michigan Beach Day Looked Like 100 Years Ago.
