    I liked this place a lot. Its kind of like Aztec meets Art Deco. At first I couldn't help thinking the false stone looked a bit like something from a theme park ride or a set from a cheap movie, but I guess in the 20's/30's this would have been very novel and unusual.

    Beautiful glass ceiling light and remains of art deco fixtures and fittings, like everything else in Detroit it's had a battering but was still a rather beautiful place.

    Again average photos from the point and shoot, but you get the idea...

    Never heard of this one, nice find.

    We're going to have to go back with decent cameras, even decent compacts.
