Avery’s Restaurant, Mancelona, Michigan

This postcard depicts the recently closed Avery’s Restaurant as it looked in its earlier days. This appears to be a photo taken after at least one renovation and expansion, as earlier photos do not show the enhanced entrance or expansion on the back of the structure.

According to some news web sites, the restaurant was victim of the economic crisis of 2008 which saw business drop off drastically.
