Shorpy Saturday – The Accident: 1906

By Jeffrey Buck

This may be one of my favorite photographs that I’ve discovered on Shorpy. It’s perfect for this part of the year, being October and all, with the ghostly figures doing their part in helping with the cleanup. It begs the question as to what happened? What photograph has been your favorite?

Take a look at the photograph entitled “The Accident: 1906“:

November 12, 1906. “Accident at Michigan Central R.R. depot, Detroit.” 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company.

About The Woodward Spine

The Woodward Spine was the brainchild of Michael Fossano and Jeffrey Buck, two Royal Oak, Mich. natives who met nearly 10 years ago while attending the now-defunct George A. Dondero High School. It seemed fitting for the two Wayne State University alums to craft an outlet to help continually refine their writing skills, while also serving as a trusted source of information for the metro Detroit community. The Woodward Spine aims to inform its readers about relevant news and events through creative and informative posts not only by Mike and Jeff, but other upstanding citizens as well who are driven and proficient in these core areas: news, opinion, entertainment, history, sports and development. The Woodward Spine serves the tri-county metro Detroit area, however concentrating mainly on the communities that lie along the Woodward corridor.
