Yesterday’s Detroit Free Press reported on projected Census figures to be released later this year that may show Detroit’s population close to 800,000.  If so, it will mean a 60 year decline from 1.85 million in 1950.

This dramatic loss of population has created an eerie city.  Here’s a great site to view it:  visit Tour Detroit and make sure you spend some time in The Fabulous Ruins of Detroit Tour featuring the photos of Lowell Boileau.
