Newsreel Found in Upper Peninsula Offers Glimpse into 1930s Michigan Winter

A 1930s-era newsreel found in the Upper Peninsula is offering a glimpse into Michigan’s past.

Sisters Nancy and Barbara Sleeper found it in their mother’s Newberry home.

The black and white film, called “Winter Comes to Michigan,” shows people enjoying winter in Northern Michigan.

The film was produced by the precursor agency to the Michigan Department of Transportation.

The sisters donated the reels to MDOT, and they have since been digitized and posted on the agency’s YouTube channel.
