I used the Michigan eLibrary's Michigania section to find a beautiful selection of old photographs called Early Detroit Images from the Burton Historical Collection at the Detroit Public Library. My favorite image so far is a building fire at Jefferson and Cass, which features common garb and a fire engine from 1883. It's fascinating to see the way people dressed back then, and even the firemen uniforms look dapper!
This was an awesome book and read very well by the narrator. I was so engrossed, I missed my exit. Twice.
