Photo Du Jour – November 15, 2005 – Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts Building

The next building to go is the old Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts,on Watson in Brush Park. The Condo renovation next door needs somewhere to park I suppose….

She lasted about 90 years. Not too shabby.

Built in 1916, this one was designed by Smith, Hinchman & Grylls with William B. Stranton as an associate.

Here is a photo from the January 31, 1917 issue of the American Architect.

Here it is this past winter.

A court yard view also from 1917.

A postcard view of the court yard about 5 years later.
