Pictures worth a 1000 words

I wish this book was out when I took History of Detroit 420 at The University of Detroit Mercy. The pictures in this book are worth a thousand words. I spent a lot of time looking at each of those magnificent and sad pictures. This book is an easy read and great book to buy and keep on the coffee table. It will inspire many conversations amongst your house guests.

Interesting Pictures of Detroit

This book is full of pictures of many of Detroit's once gorgeous buildings which are now in ruin. The photography is stunning, though haunting. It's hard to believe all of this sits untouched, and so close to home!

Great Look at the Ruins of Detroit

I've seen these buildings, but hadn't seen the stories that built them. Now I've seen both and am fascinated, impressed & depressed all at the same time.
