Transcription"The Detroit Lakes tourist season is now in full swing, aided by favorable weather of the past few days. This Fargo Forum Photo, taken by Gifford Herron at an altitude of 3, 300 feet just northeast of the city, shows a few reasons why Detroit Lakes is a resort area. Memorial day is considered the unofficial opening of the tourist season, with Labor day the closing." - Caption with image, Fargo Forum and Daily Tribune, June 12, 1949, p. 18.
