Iconic Images of Detroit's Past: History Through the Lens of The Detroit News

Loved old Detroit photos

This book is a great addition to our Detroit history in pictures book collection. Any time we’re driving around old neighborhoods or downtown my husband wonders what they looked like back-in-the-day. This beautiful book gives us a glimpse into the past and answers his questions.
