Today’s photograph is sort of ironic in the sense that you can see tracks running along Woodward that will soon be restored once the new light rail system is completed from Hart Plaza to New Center. In a city dominated by the automobile for so many years it’s incredible to finally see other modes of transportation springing back to life.
Take a look at the photographed entitled “Green Detroit: 1942.”
