time capsules of Detroit, repeat

Photo project highlighting Detroit’s deterioration into a “ghost-town” through abandoned buildings, by Detroiturbex.   It is a huge project and well worth exploring, some outstanding architectural photos. Click to enlarge images.

With some time having elapsed since our first visit, a look at how St. Agnes has changed

This part of the project features Cass Technical High School.  The photos below reveal a history encapsulated into single images.  Room for room.  Photos from the school’s past – a past full of vibrancy and potential – superimposed onto the most recent images of a decayed, lifeless, shell.  Desks, chairs and equipment left in place.  Tragic loss.  The first one is my favorite.
