Photos, postcards and other information about the building of Detroit are available, logically enough, at BuildingsofDetroit.com. To say that the images are haunting in light of the current state of that city would be a vast understatement. Thanks to Scott Martelle (who posts more interesting stuff on Facebook than anyone I know) for the link.
Oddly enough, I’m actually going to Detroit for Spring Break. Well, Dearborn, actually so look for good stuff from the Henry Ford Museum coming soon to this space.
