Some things I've seen in "The D" recently

Woodward Avenue, downtown Detroit on a spring afternoon:

"Hitsville U.S.A." - The Motown Museum. This is the place where all those great Motown hits of the 1960s came from:

The famous "Studio A." A converted garage attached to the white house in the photo above. It amazes me how small this space is, and what a lot of great music came out of it.


The first Beaver dam found on the Detroit river in 80 years! This is an old power plant water inlet at the north end of the Detroit River. Nature is making a comeback. This beaver dam made international news.


The Woodward fountain in Campus Martius Park Downtown :

The Ambasador Bridge to Canada:
The aquarium on Belle Isle. Opened in 1904, it was the first aquarium in the United States, but has been closed for many years.
