This history of Detroit tells the story of the great industrial city, from its beginning as a French fur trading outpost in 1701 to its new era of hope and renewal in the 21st century. In between are the highs and lows: the birth and boom of the auto industry, the grandeur of the 1920s and the postwar era, the loss of population and jobs in the dark times between 1968 and the 1990s, the closing of Tiger Stadium, and the new activity surrounding the Campus Martius area and Comerica Park. More than 100 vintage photographs.
