1939 Detroit Memorial Day Parade down Woodward

1939 Detroit Memorial Day Parade, photo by Buildings of Detroit

Buildings of Detroit shared this photo back in 2013 saying:

Tonight the Wayback Machine continues to show us views of Detroit’s Memorial Day Parade down Woodward, this time in 1939. Most of the structures remain as they were in the previous 1920 image (click to see it!). We can clearly see Kern’s and an expanded Hudson’s, as well as Eaton Tower, Bond Clothing, and the Majestic Building along with the Detroit Opera House, now transformed into Sam’s Cut Rate clothing store.

View the photo bigger and definitely follow Buildings of Detroit on Facebook for lots more about Detroit’s unique architectural heritage.
