Detroit Showcase Company

While driving down Fort Street one day, I noticed this large warehouse.

The faded paint on the facade reads “Detroit Showcase Company”. It was here that display showcases for various stores were made.

Here is a Sandborn Map from 1921. The 1897 Map didn’t show the company in this location.

By 1950 the building had been expanded, but the company was gone.
