The post card depicted and titled Morrison Lake, Coldwater, Mich. shows a photograph taken in the 1910's. The cottage shown is the old Branch Cottage. Built by J. B. Branch in 1887, he was the owner of J. B. Branch and Company, a long time retail store in downtown Coldwater. The cottage played host to the author and creator of Tarzan of the Apes, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Burroughs was an in-law of the Branch's and found Morrison Lake to be a relaxing get away from the turmoil of turn of the century Chicago, Illinois. The cottage still stands.
