Shorpy Saturday – Small Steaks: 1912

By Jeffrey Buck

I am applaud by what currently stands where this architectural gem once called home. One of the largest food chains in the world. Not Subway. Think yellow arches. So for that very fact I will not subject you to a “today” picture. The smoke stack to the rear is still standing. You can find it in Midtown where the resurgence of Detroit is exploding!

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Small Steaks: 1912“:

 

Detroit circa 1912. “Dime Savings Bank, Woodward & Willis branch.” As is often the case with these glass plates, a supporting player steals the scene: Jordan’s Cafeteria, where the Small Steak is 20 cents. The friendly loan officers next door can help with that. Detroit Publishing Company.
