I received some photographs from my friend Historian Paul Lee recently of Dunbar Hospital in Detroit. My paternal grandfather was one of the physicians and founders back in the 1920s. I combined the photo from July 2014 with a photograph from 1922. You can read more about Dunbar Hospital in previous posts at these links A Speech on the Graduation of the first class of nurses, Births, Deaths, Doctors and Detroit, Part 2. Click to enlarge the photograph.
I have linked this post to the Family Curator’s World Photography Day post. I participated in 2011 with a post of photographs from Springfield, Then and Now.

I am always informed, amazed, elated and grateful for the content of this website.
I love the “Then and Now” contrasts. One of our Media outlets had a series like this a while ago and I thought it was fascinating – as you’ve just shown.
I do too Pauleen. I wasn’t totally satisfied with this one. Not sure why. I think the top photo may need to be more see through. I made the changes and like it much better.
Kristin, you should link this with The Family Curator’s World Photography Day post at http://www.thefamilycurator.com/home/2014/8/18/join-genealogy-world-photo-day-2014.html. It perfectly fits!
Thanks Nancy! I made a few changes and sent my link.
Excellent as always Kristin. I really like this idea and think that I would like to try something similar in future. Time to take some holidays and plan some visits 🙂
The building is now being auctioned off! I wish someone would buy it and make it into a museum or something.
So do I.
