The description states:

COMMERCIAL FISHING DOCK

Jacksonport, Door County, Wisconsin

–As Door County is a peninsula, the natural inclination was to exploit the available resources of Lake Michigan, and thus every town and settlement had a fishing dock that could afford it. This village is about half way along the Door County peninsula, on the main lakeshore.

This card is dated 1958.
