The historical Leland, Michigan photographs below are from Erhardt Peter’s original collection from the 1930’s. Erhardt Peters was a prolific and talented photographer in the Ludington and Leelanau areas throughout much of the 20th century. During his career he generated thousands of black and white photos of Northern Michigan, but Leland and Fishtown were his particular favorites. There is a book called “Loving Leland” by David Peterson that features hundreds of Erhardt Peters photos. You can also purchase a CD of his photos from the Leelanau Historical Society.
