do we know what year the map was drawn?
Yeah, I want to see more of the map... especially Detroit street and Saginaw St.
The map is Flint 1890, It is from The Flint Journal Centennial Picture History of Flint book . I will scan some more and post it on my flickr account and Flint Expats can post it here if they like
Who are you Flintstoner 80? Great pictures - but how did you get the picture of King Arthur and his truck? Is it a mirage or is that in SF? I learned to drive in that truck. The picture of King Art's brings back plenty of memories. I forgot about the brown and orange paint job.Lori B.
OK, now I know who you are (flintstoner80 or at least the family) after looking further at the pictures. If you are from the "A" family, contact Gordie to get my e-mail and let me know how you are all doing.Lori B.
Ok Lori...will do...and thanks again for posting my pics Gordie
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
