Michigan Places That No Longer Exist 002

author: Cosmo : Detroit, MI


Both these graffiti photos are taken at an industrial installation that had been long abandoned and vacant except for the temporary visitors, some of whom left their marks as is seen here. All this area has been cleared of structures and new residential and recreational developments are in the works.

Found this sloppy one on the side of the Brooklyn Diner near the old Tiger Stadium in Detroit.


Toynbee Tiles

author: Cosmo : Detroit, MI


There's a strange phenonemon, tinged with urban legend but real nonetheless, consisting of mysterious tiles embedded in the pavement of major cities throughout the U.S. and in some other world cities: Toynbee Tiles. I am aware of two reported to be located in Detroit: At the intersection of Randolf and Congress, see it there in the crosswalk? Next is a close up of that tile: The other tile was located at Woodward and Larned, see it in this next photo, again in the crosswalk: And a close up of the Woodward/Larned tile: Last time I checked the Woodward/Larned one is no longer...


Michigan Places That No Longer Exist 001

author: Cosmo : Chelsea, MI


Two photos of Schumm's restaurant in Chelsea, MI. The place has since been demolished. This will be the first of a possible series I shall call Michigan places that no longer exist. The roof obviously has a skylight but I have never been inside the place so I don't know how it looked in the dining room. If anyone has photos to show that I'd be interested to see. I found the following web page with more images: www.dalejtravis.com/barn/michigan/htm/mi08110.htm


I Am a Coaster

author: Cosmo : Ecorse, MI


On the bridges that carry all the rail traffic south of Detroit.

sometimes seemingly innocuous objects in the urban jungle are involved in epic 'invisible' struggles of tug-of-war underneath our mere mortal noses...a pitched battle is captured.
