Shorpy Saturday – Snow Globe: 1902

By Jeffrey Buck

The cold weather has arrived and Michigan will soon see its first substantial snow fall. As the temperature continues to drop in Detroit there is still plenty of hot new development going on downtown. Grand Circus Park, seen below in 1902, is witnessing a rebirth of its many surrounding buildings as work continues at the Whitney Building.  Once completed it will join the Madison Theatre and Broderick Tower, along with several other buildings, in the growing downtown area.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Snow Globe: 1902“:
