With my focus on ships lately, it has been a while since I've been down to this part of Detroit. I do kind of miss it. Since I was taking a picture of the Spirit of Detroit, I figured I would get pictures of the rest of the area.
The One Woodward Building which as I said was a prototype of sorts for the World Trade Center.
The Renaissance Center which wasn't a prototype but there are buildings which have used a similar design in other parts of the country.
Looking up at the building that used to be called the Comerica Tower. I don't think there are other buildings that look like this one.
The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial. There are similar looking statues but I like this one the best.
The figure at the top of the statue, I forget what she's called though.
Another shot of the memorial.
I forget what building this one is.
A better shot of the Comerica Tower. I love the Gothic revival spires on the top.
Looking up at a column on one of the buildings down there.
The Guardian Building is probably one of my favorites. I just wish I could get a full out shot of it. I guess at one time you could. That's progress for you.
The shield above the old Grand Trunk ticket office.
Looking up at the Vinton Building. I believe this one was designed by Albert Kahn.
One more shot of the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial.
Not sure what this piece is called. Normally I wouldn't leave other things in the picture, but I kind of liked the effect.
And a not so good shot of the Comerica Tower while I was stopped at a light.
