This image shows the main building that housed the State Normal School in Marquette, Michigan. The name Normal School indicates it was established to train teachers. As the area around the school developed and became more populated, the name was changed several times, to the current Northern Michigan University.
There is no description on the back of the card. The fact that the card uses the name Normal School, which was changed in 1927, indicates that the card predates that event. In addition, the card was used and is dated 14 Oct 1924.
