Never knew that the WSU Virtual Motor City Collection had videos.

Many of us would be interested in taking a peak:


Here are a few I thought were interesting:

Detroit then and then...

Before the Book Cadillac

I believe this is also the Cadillac.

Flying to Cleveland

Where were these WWJ towers?

That stove gets around.

Building the Penobscot.

Penobscot High Steel

Announcing the Stott tower.

And building it.


The Big House is born.

Parade Shots

Urban Farming not new.

New Year at the Harmonie Club. A bit different than the basement house music event where my wife and I first got to know each other about 3 years ago (Centre St.)

Flying over Detroit

Building the Old Y. Was this the one at the corner of GCP?

Another Y. This one must be on Clark Park.


Santa Claus on the Bridge

Guardian Property

Building the Olympia


And Another

Announcing the Fisher Bldg

Model A

Maybe efforts should have been better spent on real transit.

First Dream Cruise?

Lighting Washington Blvd.

Temple Beth El

Building Belle Isle

Go Blue!

Thanx for doing all the work related to creating this list. I know it took a lot of work to create all those links.

The building of Belle Isle is a very interesting. Before watching it I didn't know that they used the pylons from the original Belle Isle Bridge to build the west end of the Isle.
