Detroit Then and ... Then

My mom forwarded me an e-mail full of old-timey Detroit pictures. You know, people lined up for the streetcars outside of Kern's department store, houses of famous Motown stars, the Bob-Lo boat. Pretty standard issue, the stuff people who lived in Detroit before the giant suburban explosion like to reminsce about.

I thought these two were most interesting, and really showed the evolution of one of Detroit's more interesting areas.

Tranny hookers have had a long, proud heritage on that sretch of Woodward. We need more celebrating of our local history. Keep up the good work!

I think I see some action going on in the bushes on the far left.

I think that stretch of Woodward should be designated a National Tranny Hooker Heritage Site!
