Do you remember Bob-Lo Island, the Elmwood Casino, Skyway Drive-In, downtown icons, (Kresges, Smiths & Adelmans, Woolworths), the Hi Ho, lost movie houses, CKLW TV & The Big 8, Detroit Rock & Roll, trips to Point Pelee – and that’s just for starters!.

It’s a neat book, and a must have for any local history fan. There are some great photos, some of which are from my personal collection, and have appeared here on internationalmetropolis.com in the past.
