Patti Smith

Images of dirt streets, wooden sidewalks, liveries, tanneries, electric lights, and telegraph offices have been chosen by author Patti Smith. The earliest car dealership, several businesses, and early immigrants are all included. Visions with America: Downtown Ann Arbor is ultimately a love letter to a beloved city, providing a glimpse into a not-so-distant past full of the people who constructed one of Michigan's most dynamic downtowns.
