Flint Postcards: The Flint River


  1. Noce...but I think that the one with the rocks is not near Flint!!!

    1. Hey, could be. Those rocks don't seem very Flint-y. With these old postcards, it could be in Colorado. I've noticed they often stamped various city names on the same image. My fave is the one with the boat.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
