The ruins of Detroit

The British newspaper The Guardian has published jaw-dropping photographs of the ruins of a once-grand Detroit.  The images reminded me of my youth in that city, spending evenings with my late grandparents and parents in then-beautiful downtown movie palaces.   That these iconic locations have been allowed to fall into disrepair is indicative of the what is happening in a city that is crumbling in more ways than one.

Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre are the photographers.
