Washington Park: 1907

Washington Park: 1907

Detroit circa 1907. "Washington Boulevard Park." Adjacent to the Hotel Cadillac, at right, and the site of the ice fountain seen here in several wintertime views. Rising at center is the base of an arc-lamp standard, part of the city's "moonlight tower" municipal lighting system. 8x10 inch glass negative. View full size.

I have a real but conquerable fear of dentists but no way would I believe a trip to a dentist would equal a trip to Utopia.

Plus I'm almost sure that below Utopia that is not an ad for Crook Detective Agency but I do like the idea of the name.

Now appearing in Austin

Some of the Moonlight Towers wound up being sold to Austin, Texas, where they're still working today.

Fountain is gone.
