Overview
Dan Austin, author of Lost Detroit and creator of HistoricDetroit.org, recaptures stories and memories of a forgotten Detroit, giving readers a glimpse into some of the most stunning buildings this city has ever known. Lovingly referred to as the Motor City, Detroit put the world on wheels. Once the fourth largest city in the country, Detroit's streets were filled with bustling crowds and lined with breathtaking landmarks. Over the years, many of the city's most beautiful buildings--packed with marble, ornate metalwork, painted ceilings and glitz and glamour--have been reduced to dust. From the hallowed halls of Old City Hall to the floating majesty of steamships to the birthplace of the automotive industry, join the author on a tour of Detroit's most important landmarks that have been left to gather dust.
