Great Pictures, Nice Descriptions

Wonderful product. I enjoy the content of the photos and the scope of the accompanying information. However, the book contains notable grammatical and spelling mistakes. It’s a bit distracting. I prefer my mistakes to be enhancing.

Detroit Memories 1 through 3

Got the books and all I can say is the people that put this together put a lot of time and effort into it. Simply put, it is really awesome. The pictures tell so many stories. Thanks for sending it so promptly too. Have already told a lot of my co workers about it. :)

Being a lifelong Detroiter, I absolutely love the books that I ordered. I sent the recently purchased set, to my daughter in North Carolina. I knew she would appreciate them, Because she cherishes the history of the city as well.
