Detroit, MI

This is a picture I took of the Old Michigan Central Depot on Michigan Ave in Detroit, MI. This is probably my most favorite building in Detroit. I'd love to go inside and explore but there is quite a fence around the building to keep people out (and I'm so not about to trespass ;) )

You can read more about The Michigan Central Depot to learn its history and see more professional pictures.


Tatham Springs Hotel, Part VI

Part I   - The Exterior of the Hotel
Part II  - The Pool  & Bath Houses
Part III - The First Floor Interior, A
Part IV  - The First Floor Interior, B
Part V - The 2nd Floor Foyer, Hall, and Exterior
Part VI - The 2nd Floor Interior
Part VII - In search of the Tathum Spring

Part VI - The 2nd Floor Interior

In Part V, we looked briefly at the interior, then spent the rest of the entry looking at the exterior featrues of the 2nd floor.  In Part VI, we are going to spend all of our time in the remaining rooms of the 2nd floor.  As I've mentioned previously, only the rooms in the spine of the "E" formed by the Hotel are inter-connected, on both the first and second floors. 

Moving outward then, in both directions, from the upstairs foyer was fairly easy.  Toward the river is a series of small rooms adjoined by an open doorway.
