I underestimated our posters and I'm running out of photography trivia.

Just for grins, please go ahead and guess photograph # 2 so that I can reveal the full photograph.

Question about #4. I think I remember seeing this on top of a building. Is that right? Or does that give too much away?

Gsgeorge:
Point taken regarding Photo # 5, however, there is something seen in this picture that is very distinct. And remember, these are Detroit pictures. I'll give others a chance before giving a clue.

Scs100:
Great question regarding Photo # 4. To answer your question would indeed give too much away.

Yes, Photo # 5 is the side of Cadillac Tower. To completely solve this one, what or who was on the side during the late 1990's?

Dkdowty:
Regarding Photo # 5, Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions was on the side of Cadillac Tower from 1995 to either 2000 or 2002. Afterward may have been Steve Yzerman of the Detroit Red Wings.

Detroitnerd:
Correct, Photo # 6 is the Soldiers & Sailors monument. Apologies for earlier stating that it was not. The photograph was taken in 1994, before the S&S monument was relocated to Campus Martius. Here is the larger photograph including skyscrapers in the background.




Photo # 4 is not a prison guard tower. Here is Photo # 4 enlarged yet again as a clue. Please keep trying.

Here is a very big hint for Photo # 4 - notice there is the top of a bridge in the background to the left. Also, remember, the photographs were all taken within the city limits of Detroit years ago. No, it is not the Bob-Lo Boat or the Detroit Princess.
