Curiously

Devoid of upper story awnings, compared to other Detroit buildings of this era. All the more so, as I believe that these are east and southeast facades overlooking Campus Martius.

Don't just lunch ...

Lunch majestically!

M and M

Fellow named Maybly originally financed the building. He had the initial "M" on all the doorknobs in the place. Alas, Maybly went bankrupt before it opened. The new owners who took over decided to name the building the Majestic so they wouldn't have to swap out doorknobs.

The Majestic was torn down about 1960.

Just thinking ...

Think I can find a good lawyer in that building?
