Flint Photos: Rick Gerow in 1959

Flint Expatriate Rick Gerow in the front yard of his house in 1959, trying out his dad's pipe, probably purchased at Paul's Pipe Shop. That's Fisher Body, site of the Sit-Down Strike in the background. Thanks for the great photo, Rick.

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
