Shorpy Saturday – Love Canal: 1907

By Jeffrey Buck

It’s hard to say, but seeing as we had some snowfall this week, winter is definitely near. It’s got me a little worried about how far the temperatures will plummet over the next few weeks, and in light of this fear, I wanted to put up a photo that provides a reminder of some of the warmer times in metro Detroit.

Dear Mother Nature,

Please don’t get too cold too fast!

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Love Canal:1907“:

Detroit circa 1907. “Band concert on Grand Canal, Belle Isle Park.” Once upon a time it might have been possible to woo a girl with just a humble canoe, but now you need plush pillows and a phonograph. 8×10 glass negative.
