Flint Photos: Hubbard's

Special thanks to Tom Pohrt for this great shot of Brush Alley.


  1. I believe I took this photo back in the late 70's. The old downtown was beginning to disappear and I took this knowing it would be gone shortly.
    I have a clear memory of crossing over Brush alley through Hubbard's on a winter afternoon when I was a child. I was with my father and remember looking out through one of these windows. There was a heavy snow falling. I think he knew someone working there.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. 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
