|1955 specification highway marker. |
Before my dad passed on his 35mm Argus C3 Camera to me, he let me take it out one day in November of 1956. I stumbled on this photo that I took right here in Fenton 53 years ago. As I think about it, it was my first intentional highway sign photo! M-87 was decommissioned the following year. It ended about a half mile down the street here at the Junction with US 23. In 1957, the first stretch of US 23 freeway was opened from Fenton to Clio, Michigan; when US 23 was shifted, they took out M-87 at the same time.
