Electrograph Building Parducci’s

Located at Fort and Vinewood in southwest Detroit, I spied this handsome Art Deco building, with what looked to be some of Corrado Parducci’s work up above.

The building today houses the Latino Family Services, who have been around since 1971.

I checked in with my associate Einar who is the resident Parducci expert, and asked him to check his databases. Sure enough it is a Parducci, architect unknown.

It is a great example of art deco, and in fantastic shape.

Not much info on the fire Insurance Maps, but they do give a year of construction of 1930.

Anyone know anything about the Electrograph company?
