Shorpy Saturday – Washington Park: 1907

By Jeffrey Buck

Street lights have come a long way since 1907. Take a look here at Washington Blvd, the location of the great ice fountain featured in previous posts here and here.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Washington Park: 1907“:

Detroit circa 1907. “Washington Boulevard Park.” Adjacent to the Hotel Cadillac, at right, and the site of the ice fountain seen here in several wintertime views. Rising at center is the base of an arc-lamp standard, part of the city’s “moonlight tower” municipal lighting system. 8×10 inch glass negative.
