2 posts already, in 2016

i have equaled my post total for 2015,
and it's only january 4th.
i can now take the rest of the year off...

but seriously,
i'm going to keep posting about Delray, and
a few other things along the way.

i'm also going to try and figure out how to make my images look right, on blogger.
so, here's a photo of Fort St. and West End.
On the other side of Fort, West End is called Springwells. you may have heard of it...?
but in Delray, it's West End.

you're looking at what's left of an old Fisher Body plant. plant # 18 maybe?
i believe it was torn down in '93.
here's a satellite image that shows the catwalk, which used to cross over West End.
you can see where it used to be, on the left side, of these current images...



















we traveled through this intersection on our way home to Delray, every day, year after year...
this intersection, for me, meant crossing over into the abyss...
that's how it felt anyway:
so cut off from the rest of the world,
from the rest of detroit
my friends
schools
libraries
parks...
all we had was... well i guess i'll get into that
in another post
on another day,
until then...
