We love the book and the pictures. A must see - pictures of Detroit past that you won't find anywhere else.

Few people under the age of fifty can vividly recall just how wonderful the Woodward retail core was. This book shows, in great detail, the workings of the sophisticated department stores, the exquisite boutiques and their more moderate counterparts and the role they played in the prosperous commercial life of the city.
