Shorpy Saturday – Detroit Rubber Works: 1908

By Jeffrey Buck

The riverfront of the Detroit River has been extremely transformed over the last several years by way of the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy. Factories like the one below were a staple along the water for decades leading to pollution and under utilized space for the citizens of Detroit. Detroit has made it a priority to create a pedestrian friendly walk along the river. Although not complete yet, the city and state are finally cleaning up sites with contamination to help spur redevelopment and space to finish this gem for the city.
