Whitaker’s Pier, across the street from the Lake Shore Hotel, was one of the most ambitious yet short-lived entertainment facilities that were built in 1890 by Issac Whitaker. It contained band stands at each end & a bowling alley in the lower level. After several winters of ice damage, it was torn down in 1894, earning the structure name “Whitaker’s Folly”. 1906 postmark.
