I think these may be of the City airport, as seen from Conner:

I gotta say, whoever took those pics sure didn't have much of an eye for photography. Kinda boring shots of some hangars in the Winter. But they sure look like the ones along Outer Dr./Conner.

No offense intended, Bullet.
I just looked at those pictures and asked "Why?". You at least make an attempt to find a point of interest.

Maybe those pictures were taken as a frame of reference for some insurance purposes? Perhaps an accident happened in that part of the road?

Finally, an import car shows up (VW Bus).
Looks like a '63 Chevy headed toward the camera. VW is about the same age. This may help date the photo a little bit.

Looks more like a (similar vintage) Rambler American by the grille and headlights. Cambrian--where are you when we need you?

The church looks like the one south of 94 near the Poletown plant. View of one of the bell towers.

"T-hangars" because the interior plan is shaped like the letter T; a wide berth for the wings with an extension to the rear for the tail. The adjoining hangars will have the same plan in reverse, with the opening on the other side. The plan alternates along the entire length of the hangars.
