A newspaper article about something else reminded me of one of my favorite websites: Lowell Forest Boileau’s Fabulous Ruins of Detroit.
Now, as for centuries, tourists behold those [European, Asian, & African] ruins with awe and wonder. Yet today, a vast and history laden ruin site passes unnoticed, even despised, into oblivion.
Come, travel with me, as I guide you on a tour through the fabulous and vanishing ruins of my beloved Detroit.
Lowell’s tribute to Tiger Stadium is a wonderful thing. Read it, and read all the Detour panels about the stadium. Read it even if you hate baseball, and despised the old ballyard. This is love, and it’s something beautiful.
