Shorpy Saturday – Union Trust: 1906

By Jeffrey Buck

I want to first apologize for the long hiatus; It’s been a busy few weeks. There has been a lot of buzz lately with all of the renovations and new construction going on in Downtown and Midtown. The announcement of the new hockey arena probably being the biggest. Work continues on the David Whitney Building and Woodward is shut down in several spots for the M-1 Rail. It’s an exciting time for the city and the region.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Union Trust: 1906“:
