    Thanks for the suggestion, archfan. Sadly it's not in the VMC or Burton image collection. I've also checked Reuther and Bentley as well. I've been researching Detroit history for over 20 years now...

    1929 Sanborn map of the general area. I can provide detailed maps based on the number sections if anyone would like them.

    Also included section 93 which shows Greyhaven and a "Reclaimed Land For...

    Sad thing is it looks like this was close to the life long residence of its original owner. The pre-1921 address was 536 Third Avenue. The Dau's Blue Book of 1885 lists Mr & Mrs Harry Chandler...

    A subject that always interested me. There was a blue and red version like the image below at my maternal Grandparents home on the corner of Kenmore and Algonac. Images are from Burton with more...

    After screaming incoherently for weeks on end regarding both the removal of the U of M Burton collection as well as the Polk 1928 guide I suppose I can take slight solace from the fact that I am not...

    Merrill Fountain

    So I have been trying to nail down an answer to a question which I had assumed would be much more forthcoming:

    Did the Merrill Fountain function as it did in front of the Opera House after the...

    Rapp & Rapp's 1928 Royal Oak Theater for the Kunsky circuit is probably a contender for this description. It's one of the pre-depression Deco designs that are indeed the exception rather than the...

    Building #10 of the Packard Plant is a single structure within the greater whole. Khan did not produce a "whole design" for the plant which evolved over decades and in fact he was not even the first...

    I am absolutely aware of the Proving Grounds and the rescue of the entrance ways and other items. I simply felt that Building 10 might be more appreciated at the Henry Ford set among so many other...

    With all due respect to you, I was making the case for Building 10, and only a portion of that. The building part in question is very small relative to the entire plant.
