It would have been hilarious if this photo had been taken by somebody other than the Detroit Publishing Co.!

Don't forget to wipe your feet

I bet the janitor's job was a nightmare on rainy days.

Home Sweet Home

How nice to finally see the home of so many of the fascinating images that bring us to this site! The building appears to have been recently enlarged; the wing to the right of (and including) the vestibule appears to have newer mortar joints which give that section of the building a lighter appearance. What really fascinates me are the varied brick patterns which have been used to great advantage in the otherwise rather ordinary facade.

Basketweave and chevron patterning adds interest beyond the
arches and corbeled cornice. I suspect that the odd window in the three-story section was the original entry before the addition. Thanks for the trip home, Dave!
