On a roll with the Guardian Building here, so I am posting some photos from the year it was last restored – 2004. Shown here is the interior after completion.

[ADDING THIS LINK: http://buildingsofdetroit.com/places/guardian. This is the most complete written history you are going find in one spot.]

This was during restoration – not too many chances to see the commerce lobby completely empty like this. Back then I carried mostly film equipment, and a 4 megapixel digital camera.
