8vo - 20.5 x 25.5 (oblong).; 208 pp. A collection of archival black and white photographs which have a unique history: "Sorting through boxes full of Ford Motor Company papers at a warehouse in a Detroit suburb several years ago, we came across an old, tattered, leather-bound album containg some seventy remarkable pictures. Black and white photos, eight inches by ten, they told the story of the time when Detroit was a booming city, when Detroit's industries drew workers like a magnet, when eastern and southern Europeans, as well as African Americans from the South, poured into the city by the thousands, when every city block saw new construction". A new and unread copy (it was shrink wrapped until opened by me in order to record the publishing information) with very slight wear to the top fore corner.
