Well, I will take a shot at guessing. The house on the street behind the park reminds me of the streets leading east off Woodward near downtown. I think at one time there was a park between Erskine and Alfred, John R and Brush.

I was thinking along those lines as well. Perhaps a gander at the City Directories or other Burton resources is in order.

Was this the oval-shaped park near Detroit Edison that was removed to make way for MGM?

No I am looking at a Detroit map from the forties and the oval parks on the west side of downtown were called Crawford Park and Elton PArk.

What if it's supposed to be "Orion Park"?

I'm not familiar with any Orion Park either, Johnlodge.

As illustrated on that other thread, those old lithographs had a lot of imagination, it seems.

Yeah, for buildings, but for parks?
