This is one of many great old photos that I am in the process of scanning from slides. An entire box of slides purchased at an estate sale has yielded a treasure trove of pictures from all over Michigan during the 1950s. I'll be posting many more as I get them scanned. For now, you can view them at the All Things Michigan Flickr page. I love all of the old cars and the colorful signage of this shot. However, I have no clue as to where in Detroit this would have been taken. I know the photo is from 1957 and the beautiful park might help determine a location.
Anyone have a guess as to where in Detroit this was taken?
