Now and Then: Abandoned School in Detroit

Quote:
Through photography, detroiturbex.com seeks to raise awareness of the social and economic challenges facing the city of Detroit. Over the course of 100 years the population level has rapidly expanded and contracted. In the 1950s the population was approximately 1.85 million, in 2010, it was 713,000.
The recent contraction means many of the buildings that were erected to support the rapid growth are now vacant and abandoned. The infrastructure was built to handle a population of 2 million. Only a third of that currently resides in Detroit.
In a fascinating series entitled Cass Tech – Now and Then, detroiturbex has created a 43-picture gallery of old photos and found the exact location of where they were taken and made a composite of the past and present.
While the original Cass Tech was left abandoned for some time, a new Cass Technical High School was built in 2004 in an adjacent lot to the north of the original building. According to Wikipedia, the original building was demolished in July of 2011.

Re: Now and Then: Abandoned School in Detroit

Kind of eerie in a way, makes you wonder if the schools you attended in your youths will some day be demonstrated the same way if they ever become abandoned.

Re: Now and Then: Abandoned School in Detroit

These are my favorite, when they superimpose the old pictures on the recent ones. Definitely brings a sense of creepiness when you can see what it once was when the building was still "alive" compared to the ghost town it is now.

Re: Detroit High School

Damn good post. I'm from Detroit. How did this happen? It seems the country doesn't have enough money to invest in our future, but they have an annual trillion dollar budget for war and I haven't even begun on new prisons being built. Go figure
