Looking North From The Norton Palmer Hotel – 1938

Another old photo, today’s view shows the Detroit Skyline from Windsor. This photo was shot in 1938, but according to the notes on the back, the print dates to 1952, and ran on Page 10 on April 5, 1953.

A view of one of the old Norwich Block Buildings… Wasn’t this the building that housed the book store? The name escapes me… South Shore Books? There is also a ferry boat docked at the waterfront here.

The tops of the Ritz Hotel (l) and The British American Hotel (r) are visible here…

These buildings are located where the Cleary Auditorium sits today. Can anyone tell what Gas Station that was?
