Did you know downtown Traverse City’s Christmas Shopping Nights go back at least to 1935? This 1947 photo shows the Christmas window at the Milliken Department Store. The Milliken Building still stands on the southeast corner of Front and Cass streets, with the lower level housing Espresso Bay. These images are provided by the Traverse Area Historical Society in collaboration with the Traverse Area District Library.
