The shell of the great Livingstone home is now part of Detroit’s lost history. Affectionately named “Slumpy” by Mrs. dFUNK after the Humpty Dumpty fairy tale, this structure has had a place in everybody’s hearts for several years now after its move to this lot. Abandoned after its move, it soon began to fall to pieces. AIW of International Metropolis and I had a running bet, who would be first to capture Slumpy in a photograph after her face fell off. AIW got the news first, dETROITfUNK got the photos. Somebody was there at 6 am on a Sunday morning to capture the facade collapse on video – which is now on YouTube.
Let’s take one last look at Slumpy as she fades into the night.
Rest easy ol’ girl.
