[Photograph albums of African American couples in Idlewild, Michigan].
African American business enterprises Michigan Idlewild Pictorial works.
Two photograph albums depicting unidentified African American couples at the African American resort community of Idlewild, Michigan, during the early 1950s. The albums were likely compiled by the same individual as they have similar covers and depict some of the same people. Images consist primarily of informal portraits and snapshots of men and women taking part in outdoor recreational activities including boating, fishing, and swimming in lakes. Many images include interior views of Idlewild, Michigan establishments and show men and socializing and playing cards. One series of images shows women riding pedal boats at the docks of Phil Giles Motor Boat Ride and men driving a small motor boat.
