Just a great panoramic picture of “old” Detroit. This area has transformed significantly since then, with the addition of much larger buildings, the beautiful park and Compuware Headquarters.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “The Heart of Detroit: 1907“:
Detroit circa 1907. “The Campus Martius.” Landmarks include the Detroit Opera House, Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument, Cadillac Square, Wayne County Building and Hotel Pontchartrain. Panorama of three 8×10 glass negatives.
