Lost Detroit: Stories Behind the Motor City's Majestic Ruins

Stories and photographs celebrating the city’s history through its abandoned architectural landmarks.
Lost Detroit tells the stories behind twelve of the city’s most beautiful left-behind landmarks and of the people who occupied them, from the day they opened to the day they closed. While these buildings might stand as ghosts of the past today, their stories live on within these pages.
This book brings you the memories of those who caught trains out of the majestic Michigan Central Station, necked with girlfriends in the balcony of the palatial Michigan Theatre, danced the night away at the Vanity Ballroom, and kicked out the jams at the Grande Ballroom. Filled with stunning and often moving photographs, it’s a treasure for history and architecture buffs, as well as for native Detroiters.
“A fascinating journey.” —John Gallagher, Detroit Free Press architecture critic, from the Foreword
