Flashback Friday: Detroit Free Press, November 4, 1880

Posted By on Fri, Nov 8, 2013 at 8:44 AM



Here was what was happening this week in 1880. Highlights include new lights at the Michigan Central Depot, a reported ruckus by noisy and unruly boys, and a stolen bay pacing mare- any information will be thankfully received at 96 Woodward Avenue. Be sure to check out the very choicest novelties for the season, to which the attention of the ladies is invited at 78 Woodward Avenue.
