Much has changed since 1912 when it comes to Detroit; Automobiles, technology, worker’s rights, etc. Even now in 2012 we are still evolving to become safer and more efficient. How has your job changed over the years?

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Coal Weather: 1912“:

  1. I was wondering how I can get any details on this photo? Is there anything written on the back? My grandfather Leopold Dziedziula worked for the Detroit Gas Company. We have no photos of him. The fellow in the front holding the bucket looks exactly like his son! Any help appreciated.
