Just off Russell Street running parallel to Gratiot is an old brick road leading downtown. It had just finished raining when I took this shot and the puddles seemed like ponds in the uneven brick road. I did some research to see if I could find out when these roads were laid out. I couldn't find much information. Originally all the roads in Detroit were cobblestone or brick as late as the 1940's and 1950's. Little by little they have been paved over, but many still remain in pockets around the City. Just another off beat view of the "D".
