Parkway Center



Zawacki. "As it turns out ..., it's a very cool building!"

"I saw it being moved!" exclaims Ted Kennedy. Early one Sunday morning, "I came over the hill on Washtenaw ... [and] to my shock there was A HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD! (In fact there were two ...)." Janet Shane "never knew it was two houses put together." "They're still gorgeous," writes Judy Steeh, who recalls when they were moved through town, "inch by inch, attended by crowds of onlookers, with electric company workmen going before," to remove wires. Kennedy joined those crowds and walked alongside the houses: the movers explained that they only moved about three or four miles per hour, and stopped every fifteen to twenty minutes to avoid overheating the engines.

Thirty-one entrants correctly identified the Parkway Center. Our random drawing winner is Marina Grimston. She'll enjoy her $25 gift certificate at the Common Grill.

To enter this month's contest, use the photo and clue on the Back Page of the July issue to identify the scene, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
