Where Is This?

Does anyone know where this stadium is/was? The stadium is believed to be somewhere in Michigan and is similar to those built by the Work Projects Administration (WPA) in the 1930's.

As It Is Today!

"As It Is Today!" is a reoccurring feature that not only depicts a vintage negative where the subject has been identified but also includes a picture of how the subject appears today.

Today's "As It Is Today!" is the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory located on Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan. The conservatory was built in 1904 using designs by noted architect Albert Kahn. The conservatory is the oldest in nation and is open to the public free of charge.

Here is how the conservatory looked in approximately 1940.

Plantin' Time

Time to plants those crops or at least some flowers! The man is using a garden tractor. Garden tractors came in two and four wheel varieties and were forerunners of the modern riding lawn mower. Please click here to see my collection of vintage engines and a few garden tractors. If anyone knows what kind of garden tractor this is, please let me know! The photo is from the 1940's.
