Several readers have sent me links to this great image taken forty years ago in a Detroit suburb. It reminded me of a picture from my personal collection of old press images (found at a local book store). A cropped version of this image appeared in the Detroit News sixty years ago (September 13, 1953), accompanying a story on the Jeffries Housing Projects in Detroit:
The kids are identified on the back, from the left, as Reginald Dozier, Tommy Gairick, Joanne Grañio, and Susanne Delangy. The photographer was Peter MacGregor. The Jeffries projects were mostly demolished between 2001 and 2008.
