Postcards From Detroit

Posted in ARCHITECTURE, DETROIT by urbanmi on June 12, 2011

A nostalgiac Flickr Photostream curated by steve_frenkel. I assume all these postcards were made by the Detroit Publishing Co. which famously produced chromolithography images and postcards.

Shorpy’s has a large assortment of other Detroit Publishing Co. photographs. Good for seeing idyllic images of the city.

Detroit Lives

Posted in DETROIT by urbanmi on September 15, 2010

Palladium Boots has an awesome 3 part video series on Detroit’s DIY culture, called Detroit Lives, showcasing why Detroit is such an exciting place to be and visit.  The video has MTV Jackass’ Johnny Knoxville exploring the city with local residents, talking with entrepreneurs, musicians, and artists.  It’s a series of videos that capture what is going on in Detroit, its rebirth, and not the popular image of what happened.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
