Michigan Avenue through the years

Michigan Avenue at Woodward in Detroit in 1865 was a gathering place and a retail area. The tallest building has a sign for Weber Furniture Company's Warerooms; the four-story building beside it includes a "Daguerrean Gallery," a drug store and a "hair goods" store; the lower buildings, at left, have stores selling jewelry, shoes and seeds.
