Vintage Snapshots: Detroit From the 1940s to 1970s

With so much of our content dealing with the products of the Big Three, we’ve had plenty of images from Detroit on our pages. But on this occasion, they highlight the city itself rather than views of factory floors and such (all well worth checking out!). The shots come from about three different sources; some from the 1940s and some from the 1950s. Then, all images from the 1970s were taken by author and photographer John Margolies.

The opening image belongs to Margolies, and features the known Uniroyal Tire sitting on Allen Park by I-94 since 1966.
