Detroit 1942: Rush Hour

Traffic at 5:30 on 2nd Avenue at West Grand Boulevard, Detroit. July 1942. The General Motors Building is at left. Here's the same intersection today, seen from the other direction. The picture was taken from the 28-story Fisher Building (green copper roof) across the street. Kodachrome by Arthur Siegel.
