Big Rapids

Upper Image Caption
Don's Radio & T.V. and Lutzke's Pianos and Organs were once located on the west side Michigan Avenue, across from City Hall, where we now have a shopping center parking lot.

Lower Image Caption
This is the west side of Michigan Avenue looking north. The building labeled "Pocket Park location" and all the buildings to the north were taken out as part of the urban renewal project in the mid 1960's. The Pocket Park and 1st National Bank (now Chemical Bank) replaced several older buildings; a shopping center and parking lot followed soon thereafter further north.
