  1. I once read a post about a great view from a men's room window in the Masonic Temple. Maybe that is it!
  2. John E, so glad you joined up - what a contributor! Happy New Year! !!
  3. Ha! Now, what did I find on live maps but a surface parking on that triangular lot behind GRPD. Where did that beautiful building go? An art supply store on the front point on the first floor was in that building, I think for all the years I lived in GR. I loved that building.
  4. That is great news - a real surprise in this day and age. Interesting about the men's room vantage point! In exploring the building (mid-1960's) I don't believe us girls ever ventured into mens rooms!
  5. Very interesting inside also. When I was in junior high, my friends and I would serve dinner to large groups of Masons for a few bucks. We always spent time running around the whole building, up and down elevators, etc. If it leases office space, I hope they have not destroyed the interior.
  6. Jealous here! After 32 years of Southern Christmases - still can't get used to it. Of course, all my shopping was done on Monroe in the 60's & 70's. Enjoy yourselves!
  7. Just started reading "The Reckoning" published in 1986. Scarry how far back some people knew what was coming but the big 3 turned a blind eye.
  8. I'm not sure this belongs anywhere here but, it's fun: check out www.beaufortgazette.com "Beaufort chalks up another accolade" and you'll see our waterfront - about two blocks from my work. I notice that St. Joseph, MI is also listed in the article.
  9. Thanks, Dad. What memories! I think no matter what generation, GR people all seem to be fascinated with the city in which they live! What a place.
  10. That is cool. Does anyone remember exactly where the old brewery (Fox?) building fit in on Michigan Hill? I remember taking note of that historic building back in 1961, for some reason.
  11. As long as you don't find cold, clammy palms
  12. It was pretty creepy in the late '60's when some of us female teenagers walked through it. And dark!
  13. Cool pics. I think one time I brought up an under Division walkway. I think I see where it was on maps live. Looking at N Division with Ionia in the picture (where Ionia meets with Fairbanks St NW) you can see the bottom of one of the stairways to Belknap then below it, a bit to the north, a short set of stairs to the edge of Division and, directly across, another short set of stairs on the other side of Division. I think that is where the under-the-road walkway was.
  14. Veloise - beautiful pictures...brought back some wonderful memories. Sure wish I could convince my mom to get a computer!
  15. The tunnel was pretty close to those old stairs and, if I remember correctly, there was a school for difficult to teach young children across division from the area of the stairs and the tunnel. My memory would say it was Coldbrook School but, I could not find anything on the net. I was pretty old back in the 1960's, though still operating. I suspect it has long since been torn down. I wonder if the tunnel was filled in / blocked off or something. It would probably be dangerous to use it if it was still there.
  16. Sorry - staying I loved those in the 60's but they were in bad shape - redone? is there still a walking - tunnel under division in that area
  17. I keep having to re-sign in. It says "you are now signed in as....." and in a flash, I'm not.
  18. To try to be more positive after a year of losses. I think if I put more effort into helping others, that would be a very positive step in the right direction! And, UP-GR sure is wonderful. Always very interesting and I love when I get a chuckle out of some posts. And the pictures - what can I say? You all are so talented. I can't believe I just happened on UP by accident.
  19. If it's on Fuller, it is St. Isadore. Great pics as usual!
  20. WOW! Thanks again. Beautiful photos and beautiful colors. It would be a sad thing to forget that something such as that exists.
  21. Thanks, Dad! I sure wish my mom would get a computer. Hard to convince an 83 year old, though. You'd think she would change her mind after listening to me talk about all the neat stuff on UP-GR....says she's going to make a list of things for me to ask about!
