These photos are of my grandmother and my uncle (when he was 2) playing in a backyard of a house they rented in detroit..circa 1950..Not sure about the location..I would ask my grandparents, but neither of them are with us anymore...I will ask my uncle and see what he says:

Those swinging garage doors -- in the age before sectional overhead doors -- bring back memories. Wouldn't take long at all and they would start to sag at the hinges from the heavy weight. The outer edge would usually scrape against the concrete. Much easier now to push a button in my car and up she goes.

We had those garage doors on Northlawn and no sag.
jjaba's driveway and garage were built with 1st class Italian cement installation.
Ray1936, how do you clear the hall at an Italian wedding?
You get on the microphone an yell, "Gumbahs, the fucking cement didn't dry!"
jjaba, Westsider, LOL.

Granny looks hot! I like the second shot cuz I'm an ass man. Other than that, I would say its west side all the way, because of the ranch like construction. Any more photos of granny?
