The Fabulous Apartment Ruins of Detroit

The Laredo Apartments, heyday in the 1940s, found at
"The Fabulous Apartment Ruins of Detroit."

Fabulous Ruins is part of a Detroit history website, Detroit Yes!

There are so many (formerly beautiful) crumbling buildings and homes in Detroit, intriguing yet sad for a turn of the (previous) century nut like myself. I'm fascinated by the US from post-Civil War to the 1940s, particularly around 1900. I love Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts and Art Deco/Streamline Moderne architecture especially.
