  1. Fifties? Looks to me like that car parked next to the white station wagon is a '62 two-door Chevy.

  2. Hey, no problem. You're just a neophyte. How could you possibly have known?

  3. Don't know what Mary Fisher does/did for a living, but this lady deserves some kind of award. Photos are clear and professionally (to me) angled. She probably got a Brownie Reflex for her birthday when she was a child and kept at it. Good job Ms. Fisher.

  4. On the subject of the P.O.--is there any information on what may happen to that building/property?

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.
