2008 Detroit Historical Photo Calendar

If you are looking for that unique gift for that local history fan on your list (or just a great gift for yourself), don’t look any farther than Rob’s 2008 Detroit Historical Calendar.

This is one of those projects that has been started by a local history fan, who’s put many years of work and effort into his personal project. I am always more than happy to shine the spotlight on any worthwhile local projects, and this Calendar now in the third year for this project, more than fits the bill.

13 historic photographs of Detroit, many of which are being published for the first time, in addition to the 200+ historical dates noted and compiled through Rob’s research. Rob is a life long Detroiter and his passion for all things Detroit is evident in the quality of his work.

We’re always talking about supporting the little guy, and here’s your chance to support an independent project that has been created solely out of someone’s passion for local history.

Like last year the calendar is only $9.99 US (actually that makes it even cheaper than last year! :))…

The calendar just went on sale earlier this week, and I was talking with Rob, who told me that several readers purchased copies last year.

Like last year there are two ways to get your hands on a copy of this great calendar.

1 Pop over to Rob’s eBay page where he has the calendar for sale as a buy it now. If there isn’t a copy available, shoot him an email, and he’ll list another copy for you.


2 – Click over to Rob’s website The Detroit Room, and click on the CALENDAR section for contact information. Or just send him an email about buying copy.

Get your copy now before they sell out (I bought my copy on Tuesday), and support a quality local history project. I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with the calendar and before the year is up, you will have learnt something you didn’t know about Detroit’s glorious past. When you buy your copy, please make sure and let Rob know that you were sent his way from
