not all those who wander are lost

I stopped in the Detroit Dry Dock Engine Works building to look around. Its such a huge interior space, the noises in there are unreal and cave like. Birds of all kinds made other worldly sounds. This is of course the building where a young Henry Ford learned machining skills. You might think such a place would be preserved.

Remember this stretch of Merchants Row on Woodward ? Starts with the Fred Sanders storefront on the left (beauty supply).

Parking lot now.

Madison Lenox Hotel ? Soon to be a parking lot.
