If there's a place to see in Detroit, it's Packard! Thanks for the great post! The Packard plant project web site has not posted any new news clips since March of 2015. I wonder if it's running out of steam? Looky! August 2016 article in the Detroit Free Press with lots of info and hopes that work may start soon! http://www.freep.com/s...nt-detroit/87913012/

Damn! And here all I was seeing was a few pipes. I had no idea! :o) "Dirty but happy, digging and scratching". Have you been spying on me?

Every block around this place was packed solid with houses. Many thousands of families were supported by this monster complex for decades. What's left now? Oh look, there's some firewood on the floor to keep warm at night. Sleep tight, don't let the zombies bite.

The massive reinforced concrete construction of this place made demolition a daunting task. Giant solid monolith complex that was made to be there forever.

Those are tiny hot air balloons piloted by fleas.

Peeling veneer. The old craftsmanship is left lost and forlorn. Maybe it will be saved, no telling. Does no one care? Is there no justice? All that's left is the zombies? Oh the humanity!

I found a bunch of great old photos of this place in either the Detroit library system or the local historical society. This 1910 image is awesome.
