    Default Need old 50's to 70's photos of Grand River-Greenfield area

    I'm trying to collect photos of the Grand River Greenfield area from when it was at it's peak in the 50's and '70's. Whole sections of that area are quite different now. Many of the stores are long gone too. Some buildings remain but it sure looks different. I'd like to document the area.

    Yo Daddeeo!

    I used to live on the corner of Whitcomb and Lyndon so I spent a bunch of time just hangin out in front of Wards or in Cunningham's. I don't have any photos for you, but I would be interested in seeing the ones you've got. I was in the Class of '62 as SMR but moved and graduated somewhere else. What years were you at MOS?

    That was a photo my sister took. I have the original photo along with one of Hughes Hatcher Suffrin plus one of the Wards bldg. Don't have any of the Cunningham's (NW) corner from back in the day.
    Cunningham's Drug Store was built in 1959.
