Boblo Island in 1964

   Posted by: kim pat   in Detroit

Anybody raised in Detroit remembers going to the amusement park on Boblo Island. But most Detroiters don’t know the real name was actually “Bois Blanc Island”, and that the Boblo boat was really two boats – The SS Columbia and The SS Ste. Claire. Due to competition from Cedar Point, Boblo Island shut its doors in 1993. This particular photo is courtesy of The Michigan Standard, who innovated the online newspaper in Michigan.

Woodward and 8 Mile Circa 1956

   Posted by: kim pat   in Detroit

Taken in 1956, this area of Detroit has remained unchanged. The Woodward hump over 8 Mile is still there, physically marking the transition from Detroit into the northern suburbs – in this case, Ferndale.

This shot is from 1983 showing the world famous Hudson Building – once the largest department store in the world, now a useless parking lot. The leadership of Detroit doing what they do best – tearing Detroit down one business at a time. It took them 4 years to get approval to tear it down, but only 10 seconds for it to fall. If there is a more incompetent, functionally illiterate, borderline retarded group of people in the world than the Detroit city council – we challenge anyone to prove it.

Highland Park at Woodward and Puritan

Shot down Woodward Avenue in 1956 near Puritan Avenue in Highland Park. That Sears building has since been replaced with a fabulous new luxury department store, cleverly disguised as an empty parking lot with homeless people sleeping in it.

Woodward and State Street

Most people think of New York when they think of busy roads, but the title of the busiest intersection in the world actually belonged to Detroit at the site of the world’s first traffic light – Michigan Ave and Woodward Ave circa 1920.

Woodward Between 6 Mile and 7 Mile

   Posted by: kim pat   in Detroit

Looks a lot different now with all the tranny hookers, but 100 years ago this stretch of road through the heart of Detroit looked like any other country road.
