Old Detroit Panos

Recommended Posts

I found these while looking for pics of Detroit's old city hall & thought you all might enjoy them. They are all from www.hellodetroit.com. These are all before Detroit really boomed in the 1920s, hence the lack of tall skyscrapers. I've probably posted some of them before, but they're worth posting again so some of the new members can see them.

Campus Martius, 1914

1907 World Series - Chicago vs. Detroit. (This was played at Bennett Park, at Michigan & Trumbull, where the now vacant Tiger Stadium stands today).

Found one last pano, a 360 degree pano from the roof of the Hammond Building, Detroit's first skyscraper. I'm not sure on the date, but it's definately pre-1910 because the only other skyscraper is the Majestic Building.

Thanks, Scott!

I've run across some more panos, but they are in TIFF format, so I have to convert those to JPEG before I can post them here.
