TBT: Sunshine and beaches at Belle Isle in the 1950s

Winter is long gone and the snow has melted away. It's time for sunglasses, swimming, and sunshine! And Detroiters know that 65 years ago, there was no better place than Belle Isle. Now, it's coming back.

This week's Throwback Thursday is Belle Isle in the 1950s. The black and white picture shows people at a sand beach on Belle Isle.

In the background is the bathhouse, Detroit Boat Club, and downtown skyline.
