The Road To Tecumseh-Town

An interesting photo above, taken in 1893. It appeared in a book called Picturesque Detroit and Environs.

The location of the photo is unknown, but I can only assume that it is near the intersection of Walker & Tecumseh Roads. The Walker’s had farms in the area around the same time period, as you may recall the Walker Farm Manager’s House that was on Walker and demolished in 2006… So there was activity in the area in this time period. I wonder what the ride was like back then, and what awaited you in Tecumseh back then besides Ste. Anne’s Church?
