James V. Campbell House, 261 Alfred St, Brush Park Detroit

    Here's another one that made it through. Just down the street from the Ransom Gillis House, it has been rehabilitated, hopefully for another century or so.

      Delicious Decay!

      Thanks for posting to, ”I Love Abandonment”

      So beautiful!!! I'd like to see an "after" picture. Magnificent old neighborhoods like this need to be preserved.

      Thanks everyone for your comments. I will try to post a few of my old Brush Park pics a day but I have to scan them and then I only have dial-up to upload, so it is quite a process! After I get some of the major "before" shots I will give the updates I have on what has happened "after."

      What a wonderful facade! I'm glad it's been saved.

      Looks like a major fix up job. Good thing it was brick or it would have been long gone.

      Love all those arch windows. And we understand about dial-up-- we're thrifty too.

      Oops, I guess this was posted three years ago so we no longer have dial-up! Also, here is an update so the place has been saved from the bulldozer:
