My Home Town

My Uncle Rick sent me this e-mail the other day:

"Detroit could care less about it's historical structures or it's history. Thanks to our past three mayors our city now looks like the old train station. A once proud city now languishes in utter decay. The beautiful Grand City Hall torn down 50 years ago, Tiger Stadium is a half-demolished hulk, Olympia Stadium wiped out and the grand lady of our Train Station now is nothing more than an abandoned and pillaged hulk of architecture that stands as testimony to our once proud past and now dismal future."

The older pictures were taken in 1973 and the recent pictures are from last year 2008.

This was once my city too.
