Detroit Times Building – 1929

This past weekend I was at the Michigan Modernism Exposition, and the Detroit Area Art Deco Society was there and has a table set up. They were giving away some information, and also were giving away copies of this photo. It shows the Albert Kahn designed Detroit Times building. Now a parking lot, it’s a great reminder that our brother’s across the river have faced the same battles that we have here in Windsor, and have lost many, many, great buildings as well. The Detroit Times building was build to house the newspaper of the same name. The building was demolished in 1978, and is today a parking lot.

As usual, great detail in these old photos. Hope everyone had a good weekend. See you here Wednesday, May 1.
