Title

The Kresge Building,
Adams and Park Streets, Detroit, Mich.

Subject

Description

A landscape postcard depicting a huge, gray building on the corner of Adams and Park St in Detroit, Michigan. You can't really tell what kind of building it is, but it is either a hotel or government building from the architecture and number of floors .
The color-added illustration depicts the Kresge Building from the corner of Adam and Park street. The building is 17 stories with numerous windows on all stories of the building. The building has Kresge written on the top of the building and an array of people at the front entrance. Outside of that entrance is two black cars that look to be from the 1920s to 1930s.There is a tree by the front entrance and near the back of the building is another tree. There appear to be red brick buildings surrounding the towering, white building. The size of the top floor windows make it seem that it may be a penthouse floor.
