The Dime Building is a jewel of the city skyscrapers that still stands today. Constructed between 1910 and 1912 the class-A office building stand 23 stories tall in the heart of Detroit’s Financial District. Unfortunately the building experienced some updating which included adding decorative grey granite to the facade of the first two floors. The building is looking at its 100th birthday since opening which all in all is a feat in itself.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “Going Up: 1911“:
Detroit, Michigan, circa 1911. “Dime Savings Bank building under construction.” 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.
