Flint Postcards: Flint from the Air

An aerial shot of Flint before I.M.A. disappeared and the bland brick buildings of UM-Flint arrived. It's tough to see, but note the photo credit on the postcard: Flint Police Dept.

  1. In a previous post dated September, 2010, there was a discussion relative to the question of where the old Athletic Park was located. If anyone is still interested, a portion of it can be seen in the extreme upper left corner of this post card. In that same post is a comment relating to the recently posted photo of the old high school, and a link in another of the comments showing an aerial view of the location of that building relative to the downtown area.


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
