Vintage Photos | October 3, 2015

“Detroit: Evolution of a City” is an amazing collection that will give you a look at the city's "growth, decline, and revival" over the years through historic and present-day images.

Some of the city's well-known places have undergone urban makeovers, those abandoned have been overtaken by the elements, while the rest, unfortunately, are completely gone. Take a look!
