not all those who wander are lost

This French Chateau castle building on 4150 Grand River is the former Eighth Precinct Police Station. A stunning Louis Kamper design from 1901.

Kamper used a similar approach when designing the Hecker House on Woodward next to Park Shelton. (former Smiley Bros.)

Of course, I am drawn to the easily overlooked details on this building – another police station with carved faces of policemen from an age gone by.

The elegant detailing on this building is extremely similar to those on Old Main – faces and all.

The police shield, used for the shape of badges.
